--- Comment #8 from harry bennett <kdebugs at saltyshells.com> ---
'Incorrect' dates were not the source of the problem(s), I was. However
'correct' dates would have made it easier to locate them.  

I was able to get the checking account reconciled. There was not something
going on. There were SEVERAL somethings going on. Of course, almost all of them
involved a data entry error.  

1). The data entry for the CC took place via import, then I proceeded to
reconcile that particular account, thus reconciling the other side of the
transaction. This would create the `inappropriate marking`in Checking that you

2). Then I would manually enter data for the checking account. Creating
duplicates in some instances, primarily because I was not paying close enough
attention (only looking at the data entry widgets, never referencing the ledger

As a matter of coincidence(?) 4 things were going on:
1). several of the transfers were for the same amount. Repeats. Making it much
harder to find the errant duplicates.

2). because of the holidays they occurred within a day or two of each other. 

3). the `date errors` errors we have been discussing.

Once the duplicates were finally located, things shook out rather easily.


It seems that I am just going to have to resign myself to declaring that as far
as dates go, my checking account drives the bus (because they charge the
highest fees if I screw up) regardless of how wrong as that date may be on the
other side of the transaction.

It also seems that if I am going to continue using KMM (or any other fin.app.)
I should do my transfers on weekdays as opposed to Friday nights or over the
weekend. This would go a long way towards eliminating any apparent `posting
lag` and/or `erroneous dates`.
