A question for you folks --

Does anyone know how far back a data file must go before the SQL interface
starts truncating data?  Is this bug specific to Donald's dataset, or has
anyone else seen this?  I've got data just for 2009-10, and I'm not seeing
any truncation or spurious amounts (so far, anyway).

Running Gnucash 2.3.7 built from svn r18386 on 2009-10-19, running on Ubuntu

Concernedly curious,

-- Erik Anderson
