Oh, bugzilla has plenty of bugs about gnucash.  The only reliable way  
to fix them is to submit patches.

Actually: No, comment#15 does *not* submit a patch for this, but  
instead it points to a webpage where you are asked to agree to  
something and it is promised you might be given a patch after that.  
This is not what we call a contribution, especially under the GPL  
license gnucash is distributed under. If someone indeed wants to  
submit a patch that fixes this bug on the gnucash side, it should  
better be directly added as attachment there, or sent here to the list  
(but the bugzilla report is better). Also, bugs with attached patches  
would indeed get more attention by the developers compared to those  
without (like this one so far).

This is no excuse, but an explanation of how this project works. Thank  
you for all of your contributions.
