As you anticipated, i devised my COA which is much simpler than yours, but
for the record: 206 accounts (both internal and leaf accounts), 8 top-level
accounts, account tree height: 5, maximum number of siblings: 21.

Yes, and having read bug 129099 I have some understanding of your pain.  But
please understand, the proposed solution of filtering the drop-down list
would cause me pain -- a smaller amount of pain, but I believe GnuCash has
many more users like me than like you.

I hope the solution proposed for bug 129099 suits you, since it would not
inconvenience me at all.
