Empty transactions in General Ledger

Ok, ok, just to clarify what made me be confused during the latest
threads about General Ledgers for those interested:
There are 4 items that somehow relate to the term General Ledger
- The General Ledger called by Tools -> General Ledger
This one really brings up a new register (or ledger) that seems to list
the transactions of the past month.
*Bug 346159* <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=346159>
-General Ledger seems to confuse the blank transaction
(not sure if this is really supposed to be part of 2.6.0)
- There is a General Ledger REPORT to be called with
This one also lists transaction, but let you choose time period,
accounts, display settings (like groups, sorting, sub-totals) etc.
- There is the Account Report and the Account Transaction Report found
in the Reports menu
Only avaiable if a register is open, whereas the Account Report lists
all the transactions from the top-register (the one you are just looking
at, in case there are several open registers), and the Account
Transaction Report only displays a selected transaction from that
register or none. The reports have the head line "General Ledger Report"
*Bug 334939* <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=334939>
-Account Report and Account Transaction Report are apparently the same,
*Bug 696492* <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=696492> -Change
report name in menu or in report output to be consistent
(maybe there are even some more bugs connected to them, just listing
those that I know of)

>>> Closing the General Ledger tab and re-opening it removed the empty lines.
>>> Re-opening the bank and credit card accounts brings back one empty transaction for each account (provided the General Ledger tab is closed and re-opened).
>>> I suspect that this is a cosmetic problem only, and reflects the blank transaction (with today's date already entered) at the bottom of each asset account's tab.
