I've found this to be a little unsettling too. You have opened an
account window (its register), and deleted the split which makes that
transaction display in that window. Delete the split and the
transaction no longer belongs to that account. Hence, it is removed
from the display. However, the rest of the transaction continues to
exist and can be viewed in the registers for its other accounts.
