Ah, the z-value of lines... as you can notice it's an oldie, at least  
in 2.28 as well. I fix that of course.

Yes, the grid value purposedly is (ab)used to define what the basic  
'unit' in Blender is. Maybe it should be called 'unit' or so btw... I  
know people like to name it 'cm' or 'inch' as well.

For defining what acceptable min/max values for buttons are  
(clipend/start etc) it uses the grid unit value now. Otherwise you end  
up with meaningless minimums and maximums. Its not really thought over  
well... something to improve once. And something that's in Blender  
since 1.0 BTW.
