In prior versions, was focus on the date field when the dialog opened?  
I just noticed that when I get into the Reconcile dialog, the cursor  
is in the closing balance field. I do have to tab a bunch of times  
(shift-tab doesn't work) to get to the date field before the -/+ keys  
work for the date.
