FWIW, I'm perfectly happy with what GnuCash does and was never confused
by it's "guess." Yes, I usually have to change the value due to a
difference between transaction date and post date with both the bank and
the credit card companies.
Occasionally, I type the wrong value in the reconcile balance. I don't
know when it was added, but since GnuCash now allows you to modify the
reconcile information after you've started reconciling, I'm a very happy
camper. I can remember several revs back when I had to abandon the
reconciliation and start over.
In short, I don't see any point in agonizing over the value when (1)
it's a best guess and you are prompted to fill in the form, and (2) you
can change it after you've started if you realize there is a problem.
