[GNC] Cash Flow Report has incorrect values

The "Cash Flow" report probably is not what you really want.
What that report does is allows you to draw a circle around a set of
accounts and it will summarize all the transactions that cross that
boundary.  Any transaction fully inside the circle or fully outside the
circle is ignored.  Most likely, *THAT* is why it's giving you 10X,
because -9X probably is fully inside the circle and not being included in
the counting.

Have you tried a P&L report?
