One quirk I noticed about opening balances is that that account seemed to be locked. When setting up a new account you could set the opening balances, but you couldn't change them later. I had to go into the account editor and unlock the opening balances account.

I switched from Moneydance as you did about six months ago. The conversion went fine for me except the account balances were off. To correct for that I just went to each account that was off and entered an opening balance, at the very beginning of the ledger, for the amount that was it off by and then everything was fine and has been fine since then.
Hope that helps.
If you have any question regarding switchin form Moneydace to GNUCash you ask me directly if you wish since I have doe the same conversion.
