Payee and Credit Card with Same Name

Financier v1.4.9

Background:
I imported my YNAB 4 budget.  Within this budget I have a Payee titled "Home Depot".

What I did:
Last week while at Home Depot I opened a Home Depot Credit card account.  When I got home I setup a new account in Financier titled "Home Depot".  A few days later I used my Credit Union debt card at Home Depot, when I got home I entered a transaction in my Credit Union account with the Payee titled "Home Depot" and category of "Home Improvement".  When I save this transaction it makes it a transfer and moves my amount from 'Credit Union" to "Home Depot".

The problem is both my Payee name and Account Name are "Home Depot". 

The workaround I did was to rename my Home Depot credit card account "Home Depot CC".

Regards,
Ed

Interesting, good to know. Definitely an edge case. This could be fixed if I namespaced transfers/payees, but I'll have to think about this further.
