Well,  looking in System Settings / Shortcuts and Gestures / Standard  
Keyboard Shortcuts, it does say Ctrl-F is mapped to Find.

Oddly, it appears to depend on where I have clicked last.  If I click  
in the Views pane on the left, Ctrl-F does bring up Find Transaction.   
If I click anywhere in the main area (Assets and Liabilities Summary,  
etc) it gives the error.  If I go to any other view (at least any I  
have tested) it works correctly.  If I return to the home page, and  
click on the main (right) panel - I get the error.

Perhaps it depends on what type of widget has the focus?

Very strange.
