Transform Panel - Illustrator changes my X Y px values

Hi all,

 

My AI document uses units: pixel. In the Transform panel I type in the X and Y values to position my object for example X:1200px and Y: 250px - but then this is immediately changed to X: 1200.0006 px and Y:250.0001px. Why are the X and Y values being changed and how can I tell Illustrator to stop changing what I type?

 

Thanks...

I wonder what there is to round when the default Illustrator unit is points (same as Illustrator pixels)?

You can expect insignificant changes like this from simple rounding. No human could ever see the difference.
