By examining which transactions, accounts, and splits were missing from
SQLite (as compared to MySQL), I was able to determine that anything
which had a single quote in a string (description, name, & memo fields)
failed to be inserted into SQLite. This is a one-to-one
correspondence. i.e. anything that had a single quote failed. These
were the only records missing as compared to MySql.
At the moment, I am guessing that the SQLite provider does not properly
escape such strings passed to it. If so, the SQL INSERT statements
would be illegal and fail. (I've built just such a bug myself once
More study of the SQLite provider is required. I did not find any
existing bug reports regarding single quotes and the SQLite provider.
If I can confirm my guess, I'll file the bug report.
