OK, so I deleted these entries in the file. Now, when I open the file in GnuCash, the progress bar does a little "zippy back and forth” thing while loading the user data that I haven’t seen before. Also, there is new empty top level account with a guid as its name. This guid doesn’t appear in accounts, splits, or transactions, however. Not sure what to do differently.

Maybe it’s not important?
