[GNC] is there a way to undo last months reconciliation

Volker Englisch
Yes, there is a warning when one tries to edit a reconciled transaction
to notify the user about the potential of messing up. However, I have
run into this bug several times myself: Successfully reconciling and
ending up with one unreconciled transaction.

This happens when the user edits one of the transactions without saving
it prior to completing the reconciliation process.  The problem is
reported as bug https://bugs.gnucash.org/show_bug.cgi?id=777472

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and my version of Gnucash is fairly old but
based on the comments for that bug the problem still exists.
