Major UPS/shipping flaw in Magento

I saw this only once before and I am amazed this hasn’t come up more often. When you have items in your cart that weight less than 1 (lb or kg) shipping does not come back as usable for any method. This is based on the total cart amount. We sell items that are very small and take more than 100 to weigh 1lb. We don’t want to require our customers to have to order 100 at minimum in order to get a shipping rate.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to fix this before when I found the one post that might help in these forums. Alas, I also apparently didn’t bookmark it either.

To fix this problem, all I need to do is make sure the minimum weight of the cart is 1lb (or kg if you are using metric) if all the items added don’t happen to equal 1lb.

How might I go about doing this?

I am on version 1.2.0
