So no accents or anything like that?

Basically, you're jumping from 1.8 to 2.2, skipping the 2.0 release
completely..  While that jump usually works, it's not always clean
and definitely not always tested.  Also, I can assure you that you
will NOT be able to take your data file BACK to 1.8 from the 2.2
windows version.

Your best bet is to get GnuCash 2.0 on Mandriva, load the data
file there, then take it to windows...  And then update Mandriva
to GnuCash 2.2.

Good Luck,
