Can you confirm in more detail exactly which part of the code makes this 

In the XML tree, a transaction that belongs to an invoice has slots 
attached with additional information saying a) that the transaction is 
an invoice or a payment (from "trans-txn-type"), and b) which invoice 
this transaction is associated with.

Changing the sign manually on an invoice and saving the file shows 
correct figures for that particular customer, both from within gnucash, 
and from within my web statements (which ignore the sign of the 
transactions completely).

Is the sign check shortcut being used in other reports?
