Could you include a suitably anonymized version of the qif file causing
the problem in doc/examples?  Modify the README to explain what it is
and to say something like "this file demonstrates the "Return of
Capital" transaction and the use of multiple QIF stock entries with
the same stock symbol"

This directory is a kind of dumping ground for sample (not example)
files that have revealed bugs in the past.  Not currently used for
testing, but useful non-the-less...
