Importing QIF files can be a bit of a lottery because the specification is so
loose, and it is not uncommon to have to edit the files to get them to import

I've imported numerous qif files in the past, but don't recognise your mention
of 'the Quicken 2002 import method.'  Can you explain, please.

Did you also create a security account with ticker symbol?

Are you able to provide a copy of your file, ideally the whole file, or at
least extract from your file all the investment type transactions, with private
details replaced, confirm that importing it, too, still fails then provide a
copy.  Multiple similar (price) entries can be dropped, as long as the format
is retained.

Send it to me off-list, if you prefer not to attach to the bug report.
