Still so in 5.3. However, if you select cm as unit and set the margin to 2.5 cm, it's fine. There's definitely something wrong here with the user interface, but remember that certain numbers can't be exactly represented in binary numbers, and this rounding to 24.99 as the nearest representable number may be due to that.
