Hi Allan,

There's probably no need to start all over. Gnucash will allow you to 
edit reconciled transaction after you confirm a warning message.

If you don't get that confirmation window anymore you have probably told 
gnucash to save your preference. You can reset this preference via
Actions->Reset Warnings...

And if you have many reconciled transactions to correct you may want to 
check a box the confirmation dialog to remember your reply for this 

After everything has been corrected you still have to rerun the 
reconciliation. Each transaction you have modified will appear again in 
the reconcile window. If you set the proper ending balance you should be 
able to reconcile any outstanding transactions for the reconcile period.

Good luck!
