Another workaround is to open your EUR asset account and create the
transaction there..  You need to enter it in full split mode, not in
the basic register mode.  The transaction common-currency will be EUR.

You'll need to enter the HKD->EUR exchange rate, and then the
EUR-><stock> stock price.

The "bug" here is that there is no way to "see" the actual transaction
common-currency anywhere in the UI.
