Bug Description

Is it possible to have an option to detect a duplicated transaction when adding a new one?
For example, suppose I buy some food today for $5, add it in Homebank and also keep the receipt. Then at the end of the month I get all my receipts and start to include them in Homebank.
Selecting today's date and adding a new transaction with the same value will duplicate the already included transaction (and without any warning from Homebank), lefting me with a wrong value in the account and some headache to find where I messed up.
Would be good to have an option (disabled by default) to avoid such things, if possible.

To star would be useful to detect a completely equal register. Every field with the same information.
This would avoid to commit mistakes when inherit properties from an existing one transaction

I more think of a global feature (not when you insert a txn), but a kind of sanity check that point out the potential duplicate.
What do you think ?
