BUG: Progrm CRASH - Sale w/Note & $$ Discount Crashes POS

version 7.1g with stock table enabled.

How to crash your POS in four easy steps.
1. Start a new sale.
2. Add a few items to the sale (if you are lazy, a single item will work too!).
3. Use the Note feature to add a note to the sale.
4. Do a reduction as follows.
Hit [F9] - Reduction
Select 2. Reduce all items.
Select 1. Reduce by amount.
Enter a reduction amount (obviously an amount less than any individual item you added to sale). And hit [ENTER]
If you followed the steps exactly as above, your screen should now have a message similar to this:
Overflow in line 5 of module POS6 at address 531B:CA76
│ │
Hit any key to return to system

NOTE: This occurs only with the 1. Reduce by amount as outlined above. The 2. Reduce by Percentage works fine.

You can now re-start your register program......
