This is with regard to the problem discussed here, specifically the
second quoted text, where the author has said that this is a "known


To summarize, for new investments, the "Buy Shares" option is the
default, and it causes the display of the fees and interest boxes,
which is quite irritating when we don't want to enter any values for
those sections.

I tried debugging this a bit further, and made a bit of headway. The
primary problem is that the fees and interest widgets are initially
hidden, but they end up appearing anyway mysteriously later on. What I
did is to add a breakpoint to capture the location (memory) address of
the fees/interest widgets concerned. I then set a breakpoint for
QWidget::setVisible(bool), and found where the widgets in question are
being set to visible again, and I found this backtrace:

Now, this falls outside any of the purview of the kmymoney code
itself, as I see it. The exact location in
QAbstractItemView::updateEditorGeometries where this function is
called is here:


I can keep going outwards in the backtrace, but that doesn't seem to
lead me anywhere. Could you please help me proceed in debugging this

If I am not being clear and you need more information, please let me
know and I shall get back to you with details.
