This is a common feature of both Buy and Sell, as well as Reinvest.  On 
opening a new transaction of any of these types, the Price field shows, 
but has no label.

In xxxxxx::ShowWidgets(), showing the Price label is controlled by 
Activity::havePrice(), which in turn depends on the presence of a price. 
  So the user has to first enter a price, but this isn't helped, for a 
new user, because of the absent label.  I can't see the purpose of 
Activity::havePrice() here, and it certainly isn't helpful.  The 
enabling of Enter is controlled by Activity::havePrice() anyway, and the 
entering of a price, so I would propose to remove it from the three 
ShowWidgets() methods of the activities that require a price.

In your particular use case, there is a further problem, however. 
Changing a Dividend transaction to a Reinvest, results in an unbalanced 
transaction, with a missing assignment.  This appears to be a hangover 
from your original Dividend transaction, so I'll need to see what's 
needed to remove that.
