# KOMA-script custom float placement incorrect

I'm exploring KOMA and am trying to create a new type of float using the built-in \DeclareNewTOC functionality. However, the float seems to be pushed to its own page (and/or before any other floats of the same floattype). Tables and figures seem fine, however

Example:

\documentclass{scrreprt}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\DeclareNewTOC[%
type=example,
types=examples,
float,
floatpos=tb,
name=Example,
listname={List of Examples}
]{loe}
\setuptoc{loe}{chapteratlist}

\begin{document}
\chapter{My chapter}
\lipsum[1-6]

\begin{example}
\caption{Example caption}
This is an example
\end{example}

\lipsum[1]

\end{document}


The result is the example is pushed to the third page, even though there is plenty of room on page 2. Thoughts?

Example output:

• odd, it isn't picking up the default. if you use \begin{example}[tb] then it works. – David Carlisle Dec 10 '13 at 17:32
• Seems to be a bug. You should write a bug report. – Marco Daniel Dec 10 '13 at 17:33
• Ok reported to the email from the scrguien document. I will post a follow-up if I hear anything – Benjamin Pritchard Dec 10 '13 at 20:02
