... that would be https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=635357
It relates to the new Save as... and Open... dialogs not being documented yet.
The user can now choose 4 different 'file formats' to save GnuCash data in:
xml, sqlite3, mysql and postgres.
I agree with David that this should at least be mentioned in the
documentation. Open and Save are very visible GUI elements, so having four
options (with different parameters depending on the option) will confuse new
users. Cristian has already provided some patches, so the documentation will
likely be ready by this weekend.
