I do not recall exactly what I did.  But I did find this in the Tutorial

In order for GnuCash to commit the zero-share, zero-price split for account
Assets:Stock:SYMBOL to the transaction in the following schemes, you *must*
Tab out of that split. If you use the Enter key, GnuCashwill convert the
split into shares of the commodity.
