During the upgrade it must have dropped a 7500 tranaction that was done around
6/1999.  I know that there were changes between the 7.1 release and the 7.2
release and it prompted me to upgrade the file. I did.  When balancing my
account this month I noticed that one of them was off by about 7000.  I tracked
it back to one of the first transactions that I entered in gnucash over two
years ago.

Incidentally the newer version seems more complicated than it needs to be as it
include a general ledger that one does not need for a simple debit / credit bank

Please relay this to the gnucash team.

Closing bugs from older, end-of-life releases. Apologies for any lack of response.

Please attempt to reproduce problems on a current distro, such as Fedora Core 3.
