 From a user perspective would it not be better for KMyMoney to allow 
the delete regardless whether there are attached entries or not. Then 
what you do is tell the user that there are associated entries and that 
they will be lost if the user continues with the deletion.

The reason this is better is because the way it is now, a user has no 
idea how to fix the problem because it doesn't tell the user what the 
associations are and hence they don't know where to look to try and 
resolve the problem. This results in questions being asked on the forum 
eating up precious time.
