That's the problem -- we need someone who can feed us patches.  I dont
have time to deal with it myself, but I do have the time (I hope) to
commit patches to CVS.  Right now the problem is that
string_to_gnc_numeric() returns a gchar* but code in
backend/file/(something) is trying to cast that to a gboolean.
Apparantly all the other string_to_FOO() functions return gboolean (or
gnc_numeric is the first one handled in the file).
