It depends on how you want your transactions to look.  The original
method was to accumulate splits.  NOT accumulating them was a new feature
(but it broke the old code when that feature was added).  It's all a
question of how you want your transactions to appear.

It should remember your choice.  If you turn it off it should remember
that and next time now ask you.

But it should explain what it does wrong, so you know what to look for.  ;)
