Hmm. Must be the pence vs. pounds issue. I'll send the issue upstream. 
They seem reasonably receptive to doing the fund retrieval as a separate 
   case instead of trying to rearrange the fields in the retrieval request.

Meanwhile, you might search the gnucash mail list archives. I seem to 
remember someone dealt with this within the last year or so.
