Still cannot enter same stock (ticker) in multiple accounts...

I have several brokerage accounts, and I want to hold shares of the same
company in more than one. E.g.,
Now GnuCash lets me set up this hierarchy. AccountA and AccountB are of type
Bank, and Ticker A (both of them) are of type Stock.
If I transfer money into AccountA and AccountB, I can then go into, say,
Assets->Investments->AccountA->TickerA and buy shares.
At this point, if I look at my balance sheet, all is OK.
But if I then go to Assets->Investments->AccountB->TickerA and try to do the
same thing, it also appears to work.
But then, if I look at my balance sheet, it is wrong in several ways.
The entries for TickerA are blank
And Assets do not match Equity and Liabilities.
This is with GnuCash gnucash-1.8.8-0.9.
Yesterday I finally got to install gnucash-1.8.12, which seems to be the
highest one around for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 on my other machine, but
it has the same problem.
So I still do not know if this is a bug, or a basic misunderstanding on my part.
