Hmm, I didn't find this other dialog, I let GC run all afternoon and 
nothing happened. I just had a flash. I was originally loading a file 
from the "Open recent" menu. I tried to load it instead from the command 
line and it loaded properly. I also noticed this on stdout:

** CRITICAL **: file gnc-transaction-xml-v2.c: line 441 (set_tran_date): 
assertion `is_valid_timespec(tm)' failed.

I'm thinking that it may have something to do with the fact that I can't 
load a second file. But I don't know.

I've replied to the user and the devel list. Please edit it 
appropriately when replying. I think this is a development issue, since 
it's from the CVS build.
