Subject: gnucash: Obscuring windows after getting transactions with HBCI.

I am using Gnucash with HBCI with a chipcard to get access to my accounts on
the German bank with BLZ 26650001. Before this version, I used the package(s)
gnucash-hbci_2.2.4-2~hbci.1_amd64.deb from
http://aqbanking.alioth.debian.org/debian/unstable/ which worked fine.

Now when I get the transactions, the following happends:
- Gnucash is getting the transactions from the bank.
- The window with the transaction to match is opened, but directly  pushed to
  the background. This window in now blocked/locked!
- The foreground gets a dialog with the question "The bank has sent balance
  information in its response. Do you want to import it?".
- After answering Yes: a new dialog is opened stating that the new balance is
  0,00 and asking to correct the balance. (The value 0,00 is incorrect)
- After answering Yes: a window/dialog is opened to reconsile the account. It
  wants to reconcile to the incorrect balance of 0,00. Now the background
  window isn't locked anymore.
- Both windows can now be closed and the new transactions are imported. You
  can't reconcele them because the balance was incorrect.
- Now I can start a separate action to get the online balance and reconcile
  the account. A separate action will report the correct balance and
  reconciling will succeed.

There are two problems described here:

First: When I get the online transactions, I also get a new balance reported.
The value is however always 0,00. Is this an error of the bank or is Gnucash
returning a value where there was no value sent by the bank?

Second: In case a correct balance value is received by Gnucash, then the order
of dialogs should be: Import and match the transactions and after that use the
balance to reconcile the account.
Now the dialogs for reconciling are blocking the import of the transactions.

Thank you for your work.
In case you need log files, just say what and how to produce them.
