I have seen something similar. And it is similar to something PJeremy@
On occasion I can not delete a portion of a split transaction. It says
it is open elsewhere. Once that happens... I can no longer enter new
[memorized] transactions, as it does not remember them. If I then enter
the expense category, it will not accept any dollar value. I must
restart. It doesn't happen often, so not a big deal for me. Just
mentioning it as a "me too".
In general I am very pleased with gnucash2.
