Re: [GNC] gnucash-user Digest, Vol 185, Issue 45

I'm not sure my main point was understood. Quite apart from all links pointing to the old database, where each bug report ends with a link to the report in the new database, the two links I mentioned are wrong. The both point to a bug number that is different from the visible text. The visible text bug number is right, but if you click on the link it takes you to a different numbered bug.

I'm pretty sure it was bad copy/pasting by somebody, because they two both take you to the _same_ wrong bug number.

I think I missed the OP.

Can you please (re-)send the URL where the visible text and the HREF are
different?

Thanks,

Actually, it looks like Geert fixed this already in GIT.

I doubt that people go through and click on each link to verify it.  I
would expect that there is a visual inspection, but 795980 and 796980
are pretty darn close so I could easily see how that typo got in there.

Remeber, we're all human and make mistakes.  I know I've fat-fingered
before.
