Resend: Stock sale skews balance sheet by commission amount

Just as a side note, I don't post questions here very often, but it  
seems like most of the time when I do I never get a response the  
first time and have to prod the list with a re-send.  Am I doing  
something that's bad etiquette in my questions, or have I just been  

Original post:

I'm not sure exactly what my mistake here is, but if someone can  
point it out it would be very helpful.

After this stock sale transaction, my balance sheet is off by $34  
(I'm sure it's not coincidental that's the commission amount), but  
the transaction itself balances, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Expense:Investment:Commission			buy 34.00
Assets:Investments:brokerage				buy 3269.68
Expense:Capital Loss						buy 713.32
Assets:Investments:brokerage:fund              -580.612 shares @ 5.69	 
sell 3303.68
Assets:Investments:brokerage:fund  								sell 713.32
