Yes, absolutely.  It's trying to find matching QIF transactions, so
the only names that matter are the ones Quicken uses.  You have to
enter the right name in the "Default account name" field for the file
in 1.4 (or the equivalent in 1.5).  The mappings are irrelevant to
matching the duplicates.

When I said 1.5 I mean a really recent 1.5 with the druid-style
QIF importer.  That one is the one that crashed.
