I am currently taking Vicodin, so I am not able to always stay within
the lines when I paint.  My primary data file is 4,519KB compressed
XML.  When I use release 1.5.5 GnuCash for Android to open it, I do not
get any transactions at all, but lots of accounts.  The 1.6.0 pre beta
dated April 24 gives an error message and fails to open that file.

I found a very old file that is about 1 Gig smaller.  When I use release
1.5.5 Gnucash for Android to open that file, it does import lots of
transactions, but I know that it is not getting transactions that have
many split lines, such as paycheck deposits.

You just released that new build while I was testing.
