Yes, I saw that.

Did not help.

I started from a fresh git clone, so this should be OK.

> Make sure that there are no cached gnucash files anywhere guile can find them: You make need to fuddle guile’s search paths if you have gnucash installed from the package manager in /usr. I don’t know how to do that. The OpenSuSE packager hangs out on IRC with the nick luc14n0 and he might be able to help.

I'll fiddle with this when I find more spare time. Or just try it in a fresh VM.

Thanks for your suggestions.
