Why does the progress bar for tasks indicate a huge number instead of the estimated value?

I have the same problem with both RTC 5.0 and RTC 4.0.3 and I don't know how to solve it!

When I create a task work item and provide an estimate, the progress bar shows an impossibly large number. Here is an example:


When using Agile planning this value also shows up and I have no idea why!  What's more, when assigning the task to a resource in the plan, the users's load does not get updated accordingly despite having the correct allocation.

Has this already been documented somewhere?  How can i solve?

Hello Richard,

Have you noticed that a resource's load does not get updated as well?  I mean, it's fine (though a bit frustrating) that progress is in milliseconds, but I can't do capacity management either.
