S4 - Minor

Steps to reproduce bug
1. Press "N" to begin note entry mode
2. Select half-note plus augmentation dot
3. Notes > Tuplets > Other
4. Actual note: 6; Actual type: eighth; Normal notes: 6

Expected behavior: Tuplet with spaces for six eighth notes over the duration of a dotted half note.

Actual behavior: Tuplet has only space for one eighth note. The rest of the measure is missing.

Selecting a dotted half note and pressing Ctrl+6 produces a tuplet of 6 1/8 notes. Giving a ratio of 1/1 (or 6/6) in the "other" dialog gives a tuplet of 3 1/4 notes which can filled with 6 1/8 notes.

It seems like the formula ND = TD / r2 would work better since it would get 6 eighth notes for a 6:6 tuplet. A 1:1 ratio would give a tuplet with a single dotted half-note.

However the current behavior of 3 quarter notes is fine and works--it is just a little unexpected.
