first: you are using the word "reconciled" unusually for some people.

in gnc world we use: accounts / actions / check & repair to force bad 
transactions to the fore

so, it may be that your lost transaction is in a .log file *and* you may 
be able to dig it out with a knife and a hammer but have you tried the 
available tools? :)

Accounting is funny in that if you put the transaction you think you are 
missing back into the equation it often shows up the other one.

Oh, we don't do accounting here :)
