Unitful divide error (but not multiply)

I am getting an error when dividing with Unitful but not when I multiply by the inverse of the divisor. For example:

julia> using Unitful

julia> a = 1250u"mm"
1250 mm

julia> b = (0.865:0.01:2.0)u"m";

julia> (a .+ b) .* 0.5;

julia> (a .+ b) ./ 2;
ERROR: DimensionError: m and 2 are not dimensionally compatible.

Since I have this workaround it is not a big deal, but it does seem odd. Is there an explanation or is this a bug?

It looks like bug to me that is specific to the range.

For example, if you force the range into a standard vector, then collect(a .+ b) ./ 2 works just fine.

I would file a bug report at GitHub - PainterQubits/Unitful.jl: Physical quantities with arbitrary units


Thanks - Done
