Hi Nicolas,

I'm not sure if this suits your needs, but I found another workaround 
to this problem. In my accounts tree, I have the following sub-tree:


All of the above are classified as assets; Assets and Shares are 
denominated in my home currency, whereas the Euros, Francs and $US 
accounts are in the respective currencies. I then list my shares within 
the appropriate account (Euros, Francs or $US) depending on its quoted 
currency. Using this system, there's no problem with any currency
