I've build the qgis 0.8 on a fc6 system and I've encountered the same
problems with measuring tool as described in the
https://svn.qgis.org/trac/ticket/449 -- the measured distances are
changing chaotically and the numbers are a way off. Howewver, when I
open the project in the statically compiled linux_bundle
(http://blog.qgis.org/?q=node/46) it works fine.
There must be some problem in my compiled version. Do you have an idea,
what I've done wrong?
