[EnergyPlus_Support] IDF Editor - Inch Pound Units

I was working in the IDF editor, and I switched the units to "inch-pound".  I then went to the CoolingTower:VariableSpeed and added an object.  The IDF Editor says that the default approach is 39*F and the default range is 42*F.  This must be incorrect, as the default approach and range is usually around 6*F and 10*F respectively.  After noticing this I went into the input/output PDF to see what it had to say.  The input/output PDF is in SI units so it listed the default approach and range as 3.9*C  and 5.6*C respectively.  It seems that the IDF editor is doing a straight conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit when it should be 
converting to Fahrenheit then subtracting 32*F.  Has anyone else noticed this?  Am I correct in noting this error, or does EnergyPlus make the correction automatically?
