This is not a bug, but rather a suggestion for an enhanced feature. Currently
when you are working on transactions in foreign currency and a currency
translation is needed the system always suggests the latest rate, which is
maintained in the pricelist. This is doumented in the manual, thus the software
behaves accordingly, but from a business poit of view something else is
Desired behaviour is that the system looks up the last rate (price) maintained
prior to the posting date. This is rtaher handy in the situation when you are
not working near time, but worj on two or three months of transactions in a row
and have maintained the respective prices. My scenario for instance is this: I
am still maintaining a FX account in the country where I am coming from, fund
it every one-to-two month (the applied FX rate is the going rate for the next
period coming), but post it actually in the system only eevry three, four

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Maintain FX rates (prices for currencies) for April 1, 2013, May 2013 and
June 1, 2013 for EUR/CAD. Home currency is CAD, while FX is EUR. 
2. Enter a transaction dated April 15, 2013 in EUR on a FX account and
categorize it as an expense.
3. The FX popup is launched
Actual Results:  
The latest rate as of June 1,2013 is suggested.

Expected Results:  
The rate as of April 1, 2013 shall be suggested.

I am using version 4.61 on Ubuntu, but according to the release notes and the
changelog it looks as if nothing has changed in the most recent versions (4.62
to 4.64) at that end.
