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?
