Are you sure they are really gone?  Find a transaction in an account
which was the other side of one of the missing sub accounts (so maybe
a checking account transaction that went to the Main House expense
account for example) open that transaction and see what it shows.  Try
clicking on the button that takes you to the other side of the
transaction (Jump it is labelled I think) and see where it takes you.

It's a straight-forward chart of accounts, it has about 15 sub-accounts under expenses, and three of these sub-accounts are divided into sub-subaccounts. Two of the groups didn't lose their subaccounts, but one did.

Happily, nothing is actually gone. There are other sub-accounts with children where this hasn't happened, so I am at a loss.
