Hi Kumar

I hadn't visited these for some weeks, and it's amazing how quickly I
forget what I've done.  Anyway, I think the attached (not to list) may
be close to what you had in mind.

Please bear in mind that they haven't yet been reviewed by anyone, and
whatever eventually gets committed may differ significantly, or totally.

However, as long as you understand that they are not suitable for live
work, I'd be happy to have your views.  What I've tried to do is to
remove widgets from view until they're actually needed, ensure they
become visible when needed - there were quite a few areas where
things didn't happen that the code showed should happen, like widgets
not being visible , apparently because of  timing issues with Qt4, add
labels where needed, and add some other very minor functionality.

I did notice in a last minute check that in a transaction split, a
widget is missing, which I'll need to have another look at, but that
apart, see how you get on.
