Transfering stock between two accounts not supported?

I am wondering if transfering stock between two accounts is not supported. 
When I try that, I get

You can't transfer from a non-currency account.  Try reversing the "from" 
and "to" accounts and making the "amount" negative.

Am I doing something wrong?

If not, for an outsider that looks odd, since transfering stock looks like a 
simple feature to implement...
