Consistant Annual Growth fails a lot ???

Wondering if I'm doing something odd... my inputs succeed 100% using Mixed Portfolio; but fail with reasonable inputs to Consistant Annual Growth, like 6% for equities and 4% for fixed.

In fact I had to enter 200% to make it succeed. Is the program incorrectly treating that input box as a number instead of a percent to be added to 1 to get the annual multiplier?

And does the year in which Consistant Annual Growth fails actually tell you exactly how many years it lasts? Or the average/median?

It seems to me that the usual starting point for asset allocation is to find the lowest average "consistant" rate (which must be the least volatile) which succeeds.
