In 1.2.18 (yeah, I know...):

One can not change the income/expense account on an inventory item, if
that item is already associated with, I suppose, an invoice.

If the item has not been sold (I assume that's the criteria), these
accounts can be changed freely.

The question: is this the intended behavior?


If so: what is the financial reasoning?

Reversal breaks if the account is changed.  Apparently the original
concern was reposting though (since the behavior began in SQL-Ledger).

I had assumed that the technical reason at least, was the mutability of posted transactions.

In 2.0, we need to have a new approach to this, though.

How do other financial applications handle this situation?
