The algrithm is actaully very good in most cases. Apparently you've hit a
corner case as well as a bug caused by lack of sync between developers (and
my general lack of recent involvement in GnuCash development).
On 2004-10-08, I changed date MATCH_DATE_NOT_THRESHOLD from 3 weeks to two
weeks, and dropped the punishement from -10 to -5 to avoid your very problem.
Checks cashed more than two weeks later is actually a fairly common
Unfortunately, on 2004-11-27 Christian changed this check to to a hard limit,
thus removing ANY transaction more than two week apart from consideration, no
matter how well it matches. It's easy to understand, from what I heard,
checks are mostly extinct in Germany.
Since I didn't do ANY gnucash development since 2004-11-15, I didn't spot it
untill today. I'll have to discuss with Christian how to best sync up.
Your only solution for now is to downgrade to GnuCash 1.8.9.

Actaully it's quite mature, but you've hit a recently introduced bug.
