I'm with you on that one.The matcher consistently fails to match certain
recurring transactions, and just as consistently, properly matches other
recurring transactions. For example, every imported transaction that
occurs from CVS (a drugstore company) always matches, and every imported
transaction from Acme (a grocery) always fails. Even tho I always assign
the Acme transactions to a specific account, the matcher never remembers
that account and uses it the next time.

I'd love to be able to throw out all matching rules, and tell it to
start learning all over again ..

My OFX import fills in the account for certain transactions. (see above)
