> Wouter, what version are you using? I have recently done lots of work on that report and it is in SVN and might be in the latest 1.9.x alpha release. I'd love for more testers on this report as I don't really work in a multi-currency environment and don't understand it well. If you were in a position to do some testing on it, that would be fantastic. (only use a copy of your data, not the original...).

I was using 1.8.9 (Mandrake 10.1), have now upgraded to 1.8.11 (the
latest rpm for Mandrake that I can find; I'm always a bit weary about
using other rpm's; Red Hat has 1.8.12 rpms available).

For testing 1.9.x: I can't find any rpm installations, and I don't
really feel like compiling myself every time, so much work and so many
ways to screw up an existing installation. Is there any rpm available
that can live nicely separate from the 1.8.11?
