Sizing bug of objects with corner radius
Create a rectangle 25mm x 25mm.
Change corner radius to 1mm.
Rotate the rectangle 45 degrees.
Try to change the with or height to 25mm in the transform palette.
You will get weird 24,7714mm, 25,0076mm, 24,9997 sizes.

It's a shame that such an expensive graphic program can't handle the basic task of sizing objects.
I see what you're getting at now. Unfortunately my installation on win10 doesn't seem to have the same issue. Screenshot attached.
Edit.. after trying again I turned off scale corners as your screenshot shows and saw the same odd behavior. Setting the o/a HxW properties to 25mm results in a weird 24.771 x 24.771 size. Trying again results in 25.008, and a third time finally gives me 25mmx25mm w/ a 1mm corner radius.
A third try with a fresh object went about the same, but this time i set the corner radius after rotating it 45°. There was no change in behavior but I had to manually set the 25mm size 4 times rather than 3 to finally get it to 25x25 w/ 1mm corner radius.
I agree with you, that's very very odd. It's like it has to do the math several times to get it right.
Attached a screen capture with size properties marked...
I am looking at the the overall size properties and trying to change them. (not the rectangle properties).
Mine seems to be ok. Are you looking at the rectangle size property or the overall size? I see 34.527mm x 34.527mm in the width/height size but the rectangle properties below that still show it as 25 x 25 even when given a 1mm corner radius and rotated to 45°
