You probably are stating the obvious, but no I didn't uncheck it.  Dumb
of me, but surely it shouldn't be possible in an application to specify
two incompatible things - I mean, if there is a checkbox that specifies
that subaccounts will always be included, then you shouldn't be able to
exclude them from the list, and if you exclude subaccounts from the
list, that should automatically uncheck the checkbox?
