Hi Marko,
sorry if I reply only.

At this time only on the first account of the transaction is added the 
tag/tags. This work well in a normal deposit/withdrawal as the first 
account is a category not a real user account but maybe not so well with 
a transfer between two accounts.

I'm reposting this in the mailing list so that others can give some 

Should we add the tag/tags to each transaction (a transaction in the 
engine is composed of at least two transaction, one that operate on a 
category or account and the other that operate on an account)?

Or should we do this only for transfer transactions?
