bug with decimalPlaces?

I can't seem to get decimalPlaces to truncate using ncl 6.0.

above yields -0.8

above yields 0.8

Passing the argument "False" should result in truncation which should yield
+/- 0.7, but the function seems to be rounding instead of truncating. Same
results as above if I pass "True" for rounding.

Is this an error on my part or a bug? If it is a bug, is there another
function I can use to truncate to one decimal place?
