I think it did make it through, but the devs have only limited time 
available at the moment.

I'm not a dev., and I don't use OFX, but the problem you have is 
actually, at least in part, a general problem and not OFX-specific.

Pending what could be a non-trivial fix, I think you have no alternative 
but to delete one of the two entries.  Or, might it work if you edited 
one of the transactions to have a zero amount?  The id would remain, and 
balances would possibly be OK.
