I might not use gnucash the way it is wanted...

When I open gnucash it opens also about 6 reports and the data is
inserted since 1.1.06, where I have also many private things, like many
entries for supermarket (simple imported from my online banking export
ofx).  So there is many data processed and open gnucash takes more than
a minute on my 1400 MHz Notebook with 1.2 GB RAM.

So my suggestion was a way to simple insert _one_ (or three, but not
many) transactions into gnucash at a time where I don't want to see all
the reports and avoid the long start time just for inserting one

The thing is:  I _don't_ want to start gnucash.
