Yes, it's a rounding issue. The problem seems to be in bills where I 
mark bills as having taxes included. But since it's only $0.11, it's  
not a big deal.

Yeah, that's what I said. My accountant is a litle more worried...

I took a look at the AP account to see if anything was amiss. Most 
transactions have a P or I type. However some have ? and they correspond 
to Split Automatic Payment Forward. Could that be a problem?   How do 
they appear?

I also noticed that when I start GC, I get a popup saying I have unpaid 
bills dating to 2004. This is something pretty recent. Recently, I had 
to go back and remove "Accumulate splits" from bills I had posted in the 
past, because they messed up some reports.

Do I have  to do this for all my invoices? The way I decided to do this 
was to use the transaction report to make sure everything ended up with 
a grand total of 0 at the end of each month. This is what currently happens.

Is there any other way I can do this which might help me uncover this?
