I'll add the book_ending flag and fix it (at least in the gnucash
code).  I just wanted to verify with you that this was incorrect
behavior that should get fixed, and that adding the book_ending flag
is the "best" solutions.  At some level it seems a bit hackish, but on
another level it is sort of the "right" solution...

I just wanted another opinion before I did it.  :)
