Uhm, well, ok, sorry for my reaction, but this was a bit unclear.

Also, since I'm backing off from gnucash hacking, there is currently no 
core developer on gnucash-devel who really go through some debugging 
with you. Chances are much higher on gnucash-de or openhbci-general that 
questions of this kind can actually be answered. So gnucash-devel at 
this point in time is not quite the right place to look for answers on 
HBCI issues.

That might be an option. Get and compile libchipcard-0.6, then get and 
compile openhbci (I think even 0.9.7 still compiles with 
libchipcard-0.6, but certainly 0.9.6 should), then compile gnucash again.

You can always have a look. Martin Preuss can tell you more, if that's 
an option.

If you are seeing problems that nobody else has discovered so far, you 
should probably rather stick to your self-compiled versions (not 
necessarily latest CVS, but important is the self-compiled thing).
