You tested transaction entries and the dates were okay?  That was the 
problem I was having.  It may not be immediately noticeable.

Well, gnucash was sort of working, just the dates were wrong, until I
rebuilt guile.  When I did that gnucash would no longer start.  I mention
that again because you say above that you did not rebuild guile.  In any
event, I will rebuild _all_ of the dependencies and see what happens.  I
will let you know one way or the other.
