If you look at the latest version of the documentation for this page (available at: http://code.gnucash.org/docs/guide/invest-sell1.html), you will see the new note that explains that the zero-share line can only be properly created by using the Tab key to exit the split. Any other method of leaving the split causes the split to be modified in the way you describe.

I'm unable to leave those fields anything but blank; when I
leave them by whatever method I've tried, the "0" disappears.
But as you say, that does not seem to affect the result as long
as the split is left via a tab.
As I mentioned in my response to David T, I still see two copies
of the transaction in the register.
Is this expected?
