- Start GnuCash with `--nofile`, maybe from the command-line.
- Edit > Preferences > Scheduled Transactions, turn off the "run at 
  startup" option; exit.
- Re-start GnuCash with the real data-file.
- Use the scheduled transaction editor to fix the template txn for
  the multi-currency SX.
- Re-enable the "run on startup" preference if you like, or manually 
  invoke the Since Last Run druid.

FWIW, this gets incrementally better in 2.0: gnucash still won't create
the multi-currency transaction, but it will complain instead of

...jsled - `a=jsled;; echo ${a}@${b}`
