That sounds to me like it's using a different exchange rate from one day to another, and I'd agree with your assessment in that case. I would have thought that the exchange rate in the transaction would be used.

Mind you, I can't wrap my head around the subtleties that seem to apply on this report.

OK, have a think about this.

Having deleted the tx previously mentioned.

If I run a TB report to 2017-12-17 it balances.

If I run a TB report to 2017-12-18 it is out by .01

Problem?  There are no tx on 2017-12-18

The ordinary use of a TB is to help find accounting errors.  If the 
report introduces errors I say it is not fit to be used.
