You're correct - it looks it might be impossible.

After applying the patch you sent me (although the last pwarn
statement wouldn't compile so I just commented it out) and trying it,
it printed out an account that only had a couple transactions so I was
able to look at all of them. One of the split transactions either had
a blank split account or a single number 1 for the account that
someone had gotten in there. gnucash 1.6.6 didn't complain about it
but 1.8.2 did.

Once I removed that line, it loads fine. The net assets value displayed
underneath the toolbar is not correct (it's too low). When I do a
balance sheet, the Assets and Liabilities do total the correct amount
so I don't know why the other value is incorrect. Also, at this point
I actually have a gain in the stock market from (didn't start using
gnucash until last December) so my Asset total is greater than my
Liabilities + Equity + Profit. Should that difference show up as
Unrealized Gains (which is 0) on the balance sheet report.

Also, the --add-price-quotes option on 1.8.2 still dies with a broken
pipe, but works fine on the 1.6.6 version. If there's anything I can
do to help track this problem down, let me know.
