Description Allen Ziegenfus 2004-05-04 15:15:57 UTC
When using scheduled transactions, GnuCash dies on startup because guile crashes with a "floating point exception" and takes down everything with it. 

(1) Gnucash starts up and shows me my account tree 
(2) Gnucash proceeds to build the various reports I have set up
(3) A dialog box comes up that says "Since Last Run" but which is blank.
(4) A dialog box comes up saying that guile has crashed. After I click
on that, GnuCash dies too.

If I delete the scheduled transactions then everything seems to work fine. 

I also tried out 1.8.9 by creating a new ebuild and that does not fix it. 

Received signal SIGFPE, Arithmetic exception.
