Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnucash

In Karmic gnucash is not able to retrieve stock quotes, although
finance::quote works perfectly:

~$ gnc-fq-dump yahoo IFX.DE
Finance::Quote fields Gnucash uses:
    symbol: IFX.DE               <=== required
      date: 02/17/2010           <=== required
  currency: EUR                  <=== required
      last: 4.089                <=\       
       nav:                      <=== one of these
     price: 4.089                <=/        
  timezone:                      <=== optional

If I add a stock with symbol IFX.DE and tell it to use yahoo to retrieve the quotes, then go to Tools->quotes database->retrieve quotes it says
Abrufen von Börsenkursen für diese Werte fehlgeschlagen:
Mit den benutzbaren Kursen fortsetzen?

which translates to: Retrieving the following quotes failed: XETRA:...
continue with the usable quotes?

The same issue comes up if I try other sources or other stocks. There is
no stock quote Gnucash is able to retrieve.
