Yes, there definitely isn't support for general queries, yet.  I *do* have 
something in there which is commented out, so maybe I need to get it working.  
I wasn't aware of the extensions menu, so didn't have a way of creating a 
general query.  All I had was the ones built into gnucash.  The main one is a 
split query for a single account, used to populate a register, and at this 
point, the assumption is that that is the only query used.  This explains why 
your BQueryTest fails (isn't split query for a single account) and why this 
test here fails (it might load a single account, but not all accounts).  
However, any accounts which have a ledger open would have had those 
splits/transactions already loaded.
