Note that this issue (Bug#394420) was present before the sx-cleanup
branch, and not on the sx-cleanup branch.  I was hoping to look at it
today, but got distracted by Things and Stuff.  But it's right up there
on the short list for bugs.

Oh, good ... these "unknown types" shouldn't happen.  Excellent.

Otherwise, you'll notice that it's printf-happy.  I'll obviously remove
these going forward.

I'm sorry, I'm not following.  There's the toolbar above the register,
and the [Help     Cancel Ok] dialog buttons at the bottom of the, uh,
dialog.  You're saying the dialog buttons aren't responsive?  They
should also have a bit of a "hover" visual effect with the mouse over
them, though this might be a function of your distro/desktop's theme.

As for cancel, the toolbar is the register's "cancel transaction"
action, whereas the dialog Cancel is to cancel the editing operation.
Two different cancel buttons isn't exactly ideal.

This is similar to the accounts tree, as well.  There are [New Edit
Delete] toolbar buttons, as well as a new "Scheduled" menu when on this
page ... though they do seem to get a bit lost.

:(  It should have rebuilt them, maybe requiring `make clean`; that's
all I did to merge the branch into trunk, in fact.

It does, thanks!
