What's wrong with gnucash

Gnucash is a fine piece of software. I have first used it in

  1. From this time however, it is not clear what has changed. Sure, the icons are nicer. There's a new splashscreen (an odious invention). At some point Gnucash gained a wizzard to set up accounts and predefined account hierarchy templates. Very nice.

However a lot of stuff that wasn't good still isn't, and there's a lot new stuff that isn't either and the world has moved too.

My task was to import account data in MT940 Swift format and find out what's happening with the money.

Most of these usability bugs have been in Gnucash since the beginning. They make working with Gnucash very painful.
