Bug Description

Currently, the default debit and credit accounts for unmatched transactions need to be manually configured using 'Defaults settings for bank accounts'. Instead, property_account_receivable and property_account_payable should be used.

I'm not sure that this is the right option. In our case, the 'Defaults settings for bank accounts' works well because we use a custom 'Bank Suspense' account as the default for the transactions. If the journal does get created for the statement line using, the 'Bank Suspense' account then it is easily visible. The book-keepers will check the 'Bank Suspense' account regularly and manually reconcile any transactions in that account.

Our accountants have already raised concerns that it is possible to change the account on a statement line to the 'Debtors' or 'Creditors' account and to generate a journal without the partner on it.

Agreed. I think the properties make for nice default values, though.

Agreed - so the 'Defaults settings for bank accounts' could still be used, but the defaults for the record could come from the properties.
