I believe this is fixed in the development branch and so should appear 
in the next stable release.

Meanwhile, what I've been doing with my credit card statements is to

transactions and do a move into my proper credit card account.  It's not 
too much hassle.  Presumably, something similar could be done with your 
savings account.
