Delete unused security fails

I'm trying to delete some unused securities (mismatches in loading transactions created duplicated securities with slightly different names). I've resolved the mismatch problems, removed all shares of the offending duplicates, and removed all price quotes for them. Nevertheless, when I click "Delete" in the edit securities dialog I get "Cannot delete a currency which is in use." I am fairly sure I'm not using it anywhere.

    You have to remove a security from the account in which it appears before you can remove it from the security list. Go to each investment account where you held that security. Go to the "Securities Detail" tab. Click on the "Remove Security" button in the upper-right pane, select that security you want to delete from the dropdown menu, and then delete it. After you do that for every applicable account, you should be able to remove it from the security list.
