Well,  something is very strange.  If I use the new KMM (just compiled  
from 5.0 branch head) to open my old personal kmy file, and then look  
at Tools/Currencies, I see a single, sorted, sortable list with the odd  
Symbol for Austrian Schilling.  If I click "+ Add" I see a single  
sorted list, with correct values (ATS and ÖS) for Austrian schilling.   
If I then create a new kmy file, I still see an unsorted, unsortable  
list, with correct Austrian schilling values.  I suppose the "bad"  
symbol is stuck in my personal kmy file from some historical time, and  
not really a problem now.  However, if I complete the creation of a new  
kmy file, and then select Tools/Settings, I get a list with ONLY the US  
Dollar.  I can hit the "+ Add" button, and get the entire list, sorted  
correctly, but not sortable, with correct Austrian schilling entry.

I'm willing to assume that Tools/Currencies should show only the  
currencies used in the currently open kmy file, but I still don't  
understand why when creating a new kmy file, the list is neither sorted  
nor sortable.
