One of the reasons for a new bug report is that, yes, this refers to an OFX
download. I suspect the bit of code I am talking about is shared by both OFX

Let me see if I understand.  I do see the info in the split.  Are you saying
that the information in the ledger is from the split lines?
How would I go about getting a report on Div income? Him, it looks like if I 
tell the "Transactions by account" report generator to look for "Div" I get
what I want.

Not sure if this is the place, but I have done a few translations in my QIF
"filter" that I think ought to be in KMM.  How should I present these to you?
