Trial balance includes data from previous financial years

Hi all,

I am currently struggling with the trial balance report in gnucash  

When I attempt to run a trial balance from 2009-03-01 to 2010-02-28, I  
end up with transactions included in the report from before 2009-03-01.

I keep the same gnucash file spanning multiple years, and the income  
statement and balance sheet are able to show me figures from a  
specific accounting year, however the trial balance doesn't want to  

Is this normal behaviour for the trial balance, or is this a bug? What  
is the significance of the "start of adjusting/closing" date, and how  
does it relate to the "date of report"?

According to the title of the trial balance, it is implied that only  
entries after "start of adjusting/closing date" and on or before "date  
of report" are included, or have I misunderstood how this works?
