The major fail that I reported has been fixed, I can see there is some 
tidying to be done.

Geert: since you are looking at
which contains
is it worth splitting out
into component reports in a sub directory ?

That is the very obvious way I kept rebuilding
when it was breaking frequently.

i.e. should the relocation of .gnucash include a rethink of
because in some situations it can become unwieldy (think multiple sets 
of side by side charitable accounts and that is before you get to the 
budget reports!)

P.S. I'm not moaning, the multi-column reports are much more reliable 
than when I reported them.

P.P.S. reading through
again, I'm fairly sure something made it better, I just can't remember 
what it was right now and it isn't obviously in the bug thread.
