Very cool. Thanks for any feedback. To answer your question from below:

If you want to report bugs but don't have much time to check for whether
these have been reported already, I'd suggest you should just add them
as entries to bugzilla:
If there happens to be a duplicate, we'll mark it as such and ignore it.
That's no problem at all.

I haven't heard of this before. Is this reproducible? Or did you switch
timezones during travel (no joke)?

Put it into bugzilla, with screenshot.

Yes, sounds like it. As for english wording: In the script that starts
GnuCash (Program Files\GnuCash\gnucash.bat) you can set the environment
variable LANG=C, I think, to switch to english:

set LANG=C

Currently I'm compiling and uploading a new version every few days. I
will not be able to do this after I switch workplaces in March, but then
we'll (hopefully) find someone else who will compile and upload these.
