That means there is no automatic way to tell a book closing transaction from
a transaction shifted by the bug. So this patch, as is, would screw up
anyone who has used the book closing feature. Is there anything in the data
file, perhaps outside of transactions, that could at least show whether the
book closing feature has been used?
