I wonder how you test if OFX imports are correct? Is your test based only on
fact that KMM doesn't show you warning signs in ledger?

My problem with CSV was that buy and sell amounts with commissions were wrong
but warning sing was shown only for sell transactions. I patched CSV code in
such way that no warning sign was shown, but both buy and sell amounts still
were wrong. In my opinion, I tried every combination in CSV code to make
amounts right but I failed, so statement reader was to blame. 

I'm going to code on weekend, so your OFX file would help me embrace it all at
one time.

Now I see that too and it needs to be fixed. As you've said it's corner case
and I didn't take it into account.
Summarizing it: It didn't work for you in general case and corner case. Now it
works for you in general case but still not in corner case :)

Thanks for the info. It looks like I was searching in the wrong area.
