WINTER '18 - SERIOUS BUG - VISUAL FLOW CANNOT ASSIGN THE VALUE OF A PERCENT FIELD TO A NUMBER FIELD

Salesforce VISUAL FLOW cannot assign the value of a PERCENT (x.x%) field to a NUMBER (x.x) field.

If we have a: Number(5,5) varA; 

And if we have a:  Percent(5,5) varB = 1.1%;

varA = varB;

The value of varA should be 1.1.  However the value of varA is set to null.  

The same problem also applies when trying to use Percent fields in Formulas in Flow.

The percentage data type is outright broken.
