Before I start testing and changing statuses without anyone knowing who I am, I figured I would send an email first.  I have been a user of gnucash for about 5 or 6 years now and been attempting to learn some of the code base by reading every commit as they are applied.  I will admit most of my programming background is in vba and vb.net, so the c/c++ is understandable to me, but I get lost when I see the scheme code.  I hope to get more involved as time moves on maybe trying to fix some of the simpler bugs, but for now, I feel like I can test some of them and do some general cleanup without too much objection.

If I look at this, I believe it should be marked as applying to Gnucash, not bugzilla.  Given the comment has the original reporter indicated that he has solved the problem, I might also be tempted to change it to Resolved > Incomplete or Resolved > Notabug, but I could see where there is still a bug but I don't know if there is enough interest to keep it open for that.

Right, should be
Product: GnuCash,
Component: Backend - SQL
