Nope. First, there's no book-closing in Gnucash 1.8. There should be that
functionality in a future release. HOWEVER, when you close the books,
NOT retain the auto-fill feature. Auto-fill is based on existing
and the current book-closing feature is designed to create a new datafile
(which means those old transactions are not in the new datafile, so they wont
be available to initialize the autofill database).
