Actually your change resolves the problem for me :-)

On a second run I get 'ERR_FILEIO_BACKUP_ERROR' because the target backup file
already exists but that seems to be trivial to work around.

Well, I guess I'll start updating all my scripts with the above change.

However it might be that there is a second bug as the swig definition is
displayed differently from gnucash's definiton when it comes to "const Account
*account" vs. 'Account const *'.
