Paragraph leading - no precise adjustment?

Has anyone else found that CTRL-ALT-UP gives exactly the same result as Alt-UP?

No. Though I do find that Alt+Up give a smaller decrease than Ctrl+Alt+Up, and I have a hard time considering the Ctrl+Alt+Up as being a more "precise" decrease. With 12 pt Arial text (12.4 pt leading) Alt+Up gives me an 11 pt leading (1.4 pt decrease) and Ctrl+Alt+Up gives me 9.9 pt leading (2.5 pt decrease). I would have expected, perhaps, a "precise" decrease as being 1/10 of the amount of a non-precise decrease, so perhaps Ctrl+Alt+Up should have given a .14 pt decrease.

What OS do you use?
