Symptoms

Multicurrency processing journal has zero dollars on journal line after changing ChartField value.

Replication
1.  Multicurrency processing journal  is created for translate within ledger. 
2.  If user makes chartfield change to correct a combo edit error, the base amount on secondary line gets zeroed and journal is  thrown out of balance. 
3.  Journal Edit corrects out of balance treating it as a currency rounding adjustment.
4.  This brings the journal back in balance  but it updates the wrong account (translation gain / loss). 

PeopleCode on the Chartfields are updating the currency rate type  and causing the problem.
