[GNC] Bayes matching issue

Nicolas Haller
Hello,

I'm a user of GnuCash for a long time now but I'm testing importing
transactions from CSV for the first time.

Unfortunately, it seems I have a problem with the Bayes matching system.
When I try to import a CSV, just before the "match transactions" window
should appear, gnucash hangs, working endlessly, CPU 100% and memory
increasing.
Same thing if I go to Tools -> Import Map Editor.

If I uncheck the box "Use bayes matching" from preferences, the import
works fine.

My file is kind of big (7 years of personal accounting), I don't know if
it's a factor. After 15 minutes I gave up and kill gnucash.

Can you help me? I'm running gnucash 3.2 Build ID: 3.2+ (2018-06-24)
from the Debian package currently on the unstable repository.

Thanks,

Is this is the first time you’ve used GnuCash 3 after having used GnuCash 2 for a long time?  If so, GnuCash 3 Bayesian matching uses account GUIDs instead of account names for tracking matches. The first time the matcher runs it needs to convert all of the match data. If you have a lot of match data it can take a very long time. The only thing to do is to wait it out.

Ah I see, that must be it. I'll give it a try and let you know.

So I let gnucash run during the night and it finished to convert the
match data. The import feature works fine now.
Thanks a lot for the help!
