Reversing a customers payment

Hi All

I'm having a problem with Account Receivable. I issued an invoice to a 
customer which was paid with a stale check. I processed the payment, but 
now I need to process the bounced check. I created a transaction that 
debits Accounts Receivable and credits the Checking Account. This 
transaction updates the bank account and Accounts Receivable to the 
correct balance.

My problem is that the reversal is not picked up when I generate a 
Customer Report.  Also if I look at the customer 's invoice the last 
invoice is still ticked as paid.

Am I doing something wrong or is there a bug in the Customer Report and 
invoice payment code?
