starting balance

I've been using GnuCash for about three years, now under SuSE 10.1.

Last week, I couldn't reconcile because the Starting Balance did not 
correspond to the bank statement.   I read that the starting balance is 
not editable.   I don't know what caused the discrepancy nor how to 
remedy it.    Is GnuCash infallible and thus the bank at fault?   How 
to proceed?

Can anyone help me decipher the numerical names assigned by GnuCash to 
saved files?    It looks like the first four numbers ought to be the 
year, but mine are almost all 2005!   Could my computer be saving the 
files elsewhere than my Home directory?    I'm trying to find the saved 
files of a month ago, so I can start with a known starting balance and 
rebuild from there.

All feedback and suggestions gratefully appreciated.
