This is what it does.  The Invoice pulls the currency from the owner.
I think setting the Invoice currency to anything OTHER than the invoice
of the owner would be way too confusing.

I agree that displaying the invoice currency on the invoice would
be a good thing, but I do not believe it should be any easier to
change the currency than it is now.

It's not that it can't complete -- it can't complete without creating
a new account of the appropriate type/currency.  I don't think it
should prevent the post dialog from appearing, but a dialog that
appears on top of the dialog would be fine.
