One way out of this would be for gnucash to gain the ability to process
its own log files on startup. If there existed log files which were more
recent than the save date on the main data file, gnucash could offer to
roll forward the missing transactions.

I appreciate this needs some code writing... but it does address
concerns raised several times on this list about the ability to recover
lost work by applying the log files. I don't feel sufficiently at home
with the gnucash code to offer to do this yet I'm afraid. Some time in
the future possibly.
