Private info, Price Paid: Saving "0.00" converts to "0". The "0" is then lost to a blank when re-saving, such as when entering other private fields. It's easy to do this by accident. A workaround is to enter "-0" (?).

Users can inventory "freebies" with the price filter, but records with blank prices are excluded. This might be expected behavior -- $0 and 'unspecified' are different -- but it's a non-cosmetic side effect of the data loss.

Oh hey, thanks for the "-0" tip. I'll have to try that.
