Direct Investment import to GNUCash

I recently tried to import investment information into GNUCash. The
problem I see is the loss of the commodity price during import. When I
get the Info in QIF format this loss doesn't occur. When I import in
OFX the loss does occur and this is also true when I use direct
connect. The same is not true when I import into Quicken.
Investigation into the OFX file shows that the information is
available. It just isn't being used. I am willing to work on this,
however I could use some help determining where to start. I can provide
a test case. To date I see that all three cases use different paths
into GNUcash. However, both Direct connect and OFX import use libofx.
I do see some additional differences in Direct Connect and OFX import.
But they both lose the quantity and value of the commodity.
