set-face-attribute :height gacks on floating-point

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I typed

        M-: (set-face-attribute 'default nil :height 1.1) RET

and saw an error:

        set-face-attribute: Invalid face height: 1.1

However, the documentation for set-face-attribute says:


    VALUE must be either an integer specifying the height of the font to use
    in 1/10 pt, a floating point number specifying the amount by which to
    scale any underlying face, or a function, which is called with the old
    height (from the underlying face), and should return the new height.

... so I expected my current font to get 10% bigger.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/local/src/emacs-via-git/etc/DEBUG for instructions.

People studying literature rarely say anything that would be of the
slightest use to those producing it.
