what branch do you mean?  I assume you mean trunk.

What version of libtool?
What file?  Is it a checked in one?

What file, the same one?  Please append it in compressed form.

I do not understand the issue at all.  Is it about GnuCash?  Do you have
a patch?

Files saved with 2.2.8, opened and saved with current trunk later on
should still work flawlessly in 2.2.8, I think, basically because we did
not introduce new file features (yet).  This may change of course.

If you save a new file with trunk, it may be saved in an sqlite file.
