That is not a bug, is a precision problem, 1013.25 hPa is 29.9212725, no

then 29.92 is 1013.20749904 (rounded to 1013.21)

and 29.9212725 is 1013.2505908362075 (rounded to 1013.25)

The function convertPressure round the result, but internaly all is ok.

Converting pressure from 29.92 inHg (the standard atmospheric pressure)
to hPa returns 1013.21, while correct would be 1013.25.

Reverse (hPa to inHg) works correctly.

Test script:
Services_Weather_Common::convertPressure(1013.25, 'hpa', 'in');

Expected result:
Returns 1013.25

Actual result:
Returns 1013.21
