Because of https://tracker.debian.org/news/859896 and
https://bugs.debian.org/790204

Make sure you read the part about it being fixed in Sid.

No, #790204 has been fixed with 1:2.7.3-1, currently only available in
experimental.


You're right and they are saying it's RC-buggy, I should have looked further into it than I did before posting, my bad and it's probably not a good idea to be running an app like GNUCash on testing or Sid in the first place.

But:

| the following warning:
|
| ~~~~
|     This release is UNSTABLE and SHOULD NOT BE USED in production.
|     See the KNOWN PROBLEMS list at the bottom of the announcement.

So beware when using that version.
