Things still don't seem correct.

When I open my old kmy file and select Tools/Currencies, I see double  
entries for many currencies, such as Algerian Dinar and Aruban Florin.

When creating a new file, the currency list is still not sorted - it  
goes from Afghanistan Afghani to Zimbabwe Dollar, then Gold, Palladium,  
Platinum, Silver, Austrian Schilling (correct symbol), and then 22  
more, ending with Turkish Lira (old).  With the new file open (only US  
Dollar selected as a currency) Tools/Currencies shows only US Dollar,  
but the complete correct list appears if I click "+ Add".

My main concern at this time is why the initial list (when creating a  
new kmy file) is not sorted.  It is a long sorted list, a few sorted  
metals, then a separate sorted list.
