Yes, that is impossible. What would I do in this scenario? Run the program
under debugger control and set a breakpoint to the line in question. While
checking for that, I find the following:
kmymoney/mymoney/mymoneytransaction.cpp line 53 does not deal with XML.
I found the line in kmymoney/plugins/xml/mymoneystoragexml.cpp line 532.
Set the breakpoint to that line and wait until it stops. Then check where it
comes from and which element triggers the problem. This might not be obvious.
One more thing: make sure to use the right library and plugin versions. If you
mix master and 5.1 in this respect, you may encounter erratic results. Why do I
The error message is kept in kmymoney/mymoney/mymoneytransaction.cpp around line 53
in KMyMoney 4.8 and before. Don't confuse things and make sure to setup a clean
environment. You cannot mix KMyMoney 4.x and KMyMoney 5.x parts. One is based on Qt4
while the other works on Qt5.
