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, 
it will
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).
