The way I do this (which is taken from other accounting software I am 
forced to use) is to use an intermediate asset account called 
"Undeposited Funds".  When I get a check to pay an invoice I post the 
invoice and deposit the payment in the Undeposited Funds account.  Then 
when I make a bank deposit I enter a transaction from that account to 
the bank account with a split for each check deposited.
