OK, I just had to fiddle with this.  It works FINE for my FCU when you 
do it right.  I had suspected I had borked the config the first time, so 
I re-tried with a brand new file (& re-set-up on-line banking).

I've now hit the 100 transaction eval limit which I thought was only for 
manual transactions, but I guess hitting [Record] for a downloaded one 
counts.  No matter, I can work with that.
