Rounding in Mortgage Assistant

My lender has a strange way of doing things. If I pay more than the exact
monthly amount, they need to make a manual adjustment in their system. Thus
they do not like rounding up or adding a small amount. They are much nicer than
the big banks, so I don't rock the boat.

No kidding. GnuCash computes my bank-assigned payment to the penny, but that's
not what I want. In particular, in every home loan I've had, I've increased the
monthly payment somewhat to (1) make the payment a round number, and (2) to pay
off the mortgage a bit earlier. I believe Quicken allowed that (not that
Quicken is the gold standard for anything that GnuCash does).
