I have seen something similar with memorized transactions for reinvested
money market dividends if I try to change the amount of the dividend,
the income does not change in one account register but in the other it
does, leaving the overall transaction unbalanced.  The only resolution
seems to be to delete it and start over, but sometimes that does not
work because the auto fill feature will recreate the error.  So far I
have not been able to make it easily reproducible so that I can report
it as a bug.
