When I run a trial balance, it is out of balance by the same amount. My other set of books (don't tell Uncle) indicates that I have about $60,000 in gains for the year.

An unrealized gain *should* be the difference between the (extended values from) the last price in the Price Editor (which is where prices retrieved from Finance::Quote go) and the price in your buy transaction. I won't vouch for the report being correct, but that's what is should be.
