Okay, I did that, and some other extra testing. Here are my 
- When using Finnish locale settings, I cannot input minus sign at all, 
neither in ledger or in split window dialog. Only way to do this, is 
input the amount first, and then edit it by adding the minus sign.
- When using EN US settings with US dollars, I could input the minus 
sign into the amount field. But, effectively it was still discarded. If 
I entered new transaction with expense category, and used positive sum, 
the transaction decreased the account total as expected. But if I 
entered negative amount with expense category, the account total was 
still decreased.

This is problematic because if one gets refund from expense category, it 
is too easy to enter it as expense because negative sign is discarded.
