Ahh - there IS a problem, but it is not what I thought.

To be really careful, I tried again, taking notes:
- open KMM and display prices.  In the list I see two entries for  
symbol NECZX, one with and one without a stock name.
- select the one without name, click delete, get "Do you really want to  
delete the selected price entry?", click yes.  Here, I thought the list  
did not change, but it does.  It now displays an older price for NECZX  
without the name, so it apparently DID delete the price.

- type NECZX into the search bar, only those two  prices are  
displayed.  (I assume these are the most recent price for each  
security).  Repeat the above select delete and confirm, the list is now  
empty.  This is the problem.  Resizing the dialog has no effect.   
However, if I
change the content of the search box, the list refreshes, and I again  
see two entries for NECZX, one for each security (one with name, one  

Also (good news) once I actually deleted ALL the prices for the NECZX  
without the name, I was able to delete that entry from the complete  
list of securities on the investment view.

So - it seems to be a problem refreshing the prices dialog after  
deleting a price, not a problem with the deletion itself, but only if  
there is something typed in the search box.
