That is not a possibility, I tried it but when you select the delete
function and it allows you to pick a new account it will only display
accounts that are of type "bank" and not "credit card".

So, Derek’s advice to downgrade to 2.6.15, make your changes, and then reload 2.6.16 is your best option.

Which seems like another case of being too strict. Can you file a bug report
[1] for this, please ? That way it will be remembered.

Thanks,

It's a related issue, but not the same. The code path followed when deleting
an account and figuring out which other accounts are valid candidates for the
orphaned splits it totally unrelated to the code handling disabling account
type changes.

It happened to come up in the same discussion about changing an account type
but are in fact two distinct use cases.

I prefer to track them in separate bugs as I don't know whether both parts
will be fixed in time for 2.6.17.
