I think there are some bugs in version 1.8.x which cause it to not save 
the custom report reliably when you click Save Report.  It seems that 
it is more likely to work if you update the report immediately before 
clicking Save Report.  If it does work, it will just append a copy of 
the report definition to ~/.gnucash/saved-reports-1.8 so you may end up 
with multiple definitions of the same report in the file.  I don't know 
if that matters, but I've edited the file to remove all but the last 
one to be safe.
