First of all, you should ***not*** !! be using the latest CVS version,
or any of te 1.5.x versions.  These are highly unstable, and *will*
crash and currently discard price data.   These are fo develpers only.
They are *not* read for beta-test.

For whatever reason, no one has writen such a report.  

However, you can do the same thing this way:
click on the 'Find' icon (little magnifyin glass)
click on the tab folder 'description'
enter in the payee name, click on 'find'

this will show all transactions with that payee.

This should work fine in the 1.4.x series.
