Oh right. Probably this isn't working for me because my decimal separator is ",".

Sorry for the false suggestion.

Yes, it does. As an aside This is a horribly backward way of doing things and source of various 
bugs. We should definitely fix this at some point.

I fixed the import file for my locale and reran the debugger. The gncEntryRecomputeValues 
function effectively does nothing in this case because the entry has no Invoice tax table set. 
The recalculation only happens when there is either a bill or an invoice tax table.

So that would explain why the discount is not substracted.
