There are no options for that either--everything is in US$

Probably not, since in general the register reports seem to be working.
I suspect somehow this register is corrupted. When I select "Transaction
Report" from the main menu and this account, I get an ok report. It's
not equivalent to the register report, since it doesn't show the
relevant information for the other account in the transaction when
there's a split.

Assuming the register is somehow corrupted: Would there be any way to
export the transactions from this account, delete the account and its
transactions, recreate the account and reimport all the transactions?
Otherwise I'll just have to live without using this report--as your
situation suggests, it's not a key report, since you don't ever use it.
