I am reprogramming my 5888 after two years.  I have been able to use CHIRP
in the past, but now the last few versions (6/1 and prior) throws up an
error whenever I try to edit a frequency with 4 digits after the decimal.

"Error setting memory: Frequency requires 12.50kHz step"

I know that a bug report was filed by someone recently, but I would like to
know if the issue is being looked at.  I can not tell you what version
did work as I update as soon as the new one is released.  The last time 
that I programmed the 4 digit frequency was in the summer of 2017.
