Weird.  That works when I search for a single transaction as you
describe, but if I do the same report on a register that contains more
than one transaction it only shows the word split and does not itemize
the split lines.

That behavior should be documented in the manual.  I wish that someone
who can figure out how to actually update the documentation on reports
would do so.  When I submit suggestions often nothing happens.
