This is not the same as that bug.  I am not trying to completely delete  
the payee.  I am just trying to remove the payee from the transaction.   
I can see this happening if the KMyMoneyPayeeCombo returns "no change"  
rather than "changed to blank" so I think Alvaro is probably on the  
right track.
