No, this warning has been there forever. You just never hit it.
It happens when you have a split transaction OR if you have a
transaction denoted in currency A, with splits into two accounts of
commodities B and C (where B and C are not == A). This can happen
if you change the currency of an account or if you change the accounts
tied to an existing transaction.

This is the first I've heard of it.
