Derek,  This email was part of a longer thread that got snipped. Yes I
know it's imbalanced.  The point is that it wasn't imbalanced before I
upgraded and the imbalances (not just this one) just magically showed up
when I upgraded.  Also the price cannot be edited.  I'll see if I can
create a simple example file and file a bug report.
