Hi John,

Now that's a co-incidence.  I was creating some transaction reports yesterday, 
and I found the "select children" didn't behave as I was expecting, I haven't 
investigated with any other data file etc. yet, but it sounds like we have 
both hit a regression bug.

I ended up having to expand the tree then do a "select all"

GC 2.4.11 on OpenSUSE 12.2 (IIRC)  so I'll need to update and test more before 
thinking submitting of a bug report....  If anyone else can confirm wierdness 
(or fixed) in the current version, that would be helpful!
