Ah, bull. The code was fine.  It worked.  It wasn't buggy.

Who's 'we'?   Are you saying you're the one who wrecked this function?
I always wondered who was to blame :-)

Tracking cap gains was the *only* reason that I ever wanted to 
use gnucash for, and, for me, personally,  it was the #1 most important

replaced by anything comparable.
