	Much appreciated.  I'm reading through all the suggestions.  I
posted over on comp.xml as well.  Anyway, I'll be trying all these
shortly.  I may have not been clear though.  I'm only wanting to ignore
those transactions that have <slot:key>gncInvoice</slot:key>, not all
transaction with a slot:key.

Thanks again.  Hopefully I can find a working solution shortly.
