Hello Jack,

OK for the "Opening balances" entry.  I will ignore it until it is  
"fixed".  The intent of the account is also what I had thought...  One  
thing I did notice using 4.7.2 for production now is that it is  
exceptionally slower than 4.6.2.. Not sure why, but each mouse click  
takes between 6 & 10 seconds... Entering an account takes 10 seconds+  
even if the account ledger containes less than 100 transactions.  Not  
sure if it is related to my previous crash?  Any way to see what takes  
so much effort?
