  This is a possibility. But in fact, I dont't see the point of having the
name of the vendor in the accounts : it is more important to know why I
spent money than just whom I gave it.

  Eventually I installed version 1.3.47 from testing. (As it depends only
on packages present in stable, I suppose the package could be copied as is
in backports.) I don't have the bug anymore. (And of course, I consider
upgrading to 1.4 later.)

  Thank you.
  Another question is : is there a detailed documentation about the AP
feature, with for example a description of the meaning of each button in
the Cash->Payment window ? I haven't found anything precise in the manual
(LedgerSMB-manual.pdf) or in book.ledgersmb.org.
  Something I haven't found how to do is the following. Sometimes I pay
several invoices to the same vendor with one money transfer. I would like
it to appear as only one line in the general ledger for the bank account,
instead of one line per invoice, because it would make reconciliation with
the bank easier. How can I do that ?

  In fact, I wonder whether it would not be simpler to just not use the
AP/AR feature and do everything with GL.
