Expect a patch within 2 weeks that will replace gnucash's internal
math operations with exact integer math. Your problem should go away
at that time if you are using the 1.5 series (though other problems
will very likely appear; this is going to be a very seriously large
patch, and more than just math is affected : new file format, new QIF
importer, and other stuff that all needed to be committed in a batch
due to interdependencies).
