XnViewMP 0.88 Changing size in unit mm changes size in px (Arch Linux)

1. Open an image
2. Open "resize" dialog (Shift-S)
3. Change Unit in the lower part (printing size) to mm
4. Enter some value

What happens: The image size in the upper part change, using the mm values for px size.
What I expect: The px size does not change, instead the resolution is recalculated. E.g. if I change the printing size to half the size in mm, I would expect the resolution to double.

Another valid, though less useful, behaviour would be to change the px size of the image so that the printing size changes to the value I entered while keeping the resolution. But that does not happen either.

To have both possible behaviours, I suggest to use the checkbox in the top of the dialog (there is a checkbox that says recalculate or something, sorry my XnView is in German).

If checkbox is checked, changing the printing size in the lower part recalculates the pixel size in the upper part accordingly and keeps the resolution.

If the checkbox is unchecked, I expect XnView not to change my image size, so in this case, keep pixel size unchanged and instead adjust resolution to match the new printing size.
