It drives me crazy that I can't set the exact number of unit's near a target. Anyone know how to make adjustments of 0.1 ?

Many a battle plans have been compromised from this feature...No it is not possible to adjust the slider in 0.1 increments.

I wonder what reference is used to determine minimum slider adjustment. Or is it set in stone ?

It is set in unit sizes. De-pines on the size of the unit set at creation of game.

Does this unit number change from galaxy to galaxy ? If not ... do you know what the unit increment is ?

The Unit size changes with each game.

The max distance of a move Near command is 70% of the sector size. Next, the Move near command is broken down into 256? (not sure how many) steps and some sort of logarithmic scale is used to decide what each increment is, with the lowest increment being 0.2 and the largest increment depending on sector size.

The closer the move near is to the target, the smaller the increment.
