I just upgraded to 2.6.6 today, and it appears that the dividends are 
found in the corresponding income accounts, without having to enter in 
the extra dummy splits!  And even better it's finding them with the 
structure I mentioned where I have the same stocks in more than one 
broker account.  Each is shown separately on the Advanced Portfolio 
report.  This is great news.  Thanks for reply and the information.  
Great stuff.
