I have hit this problem too, mentioned here:

I'm not entirely sure if this is a bug or if there is some other way of
handling a negative balance in ledgersmb.

I'm no expert on ledgersmb code but am going to have a dig into this now -
perhaps it's as simple as a bug in the validation code? I'll report back
if I manage to find anything
