How to do manual accounting entries in foreign currency ?

Here a simple senario: Company currency = "EUR" Account "Bank USD" has "USD" as a secondary currency Journal "Bank USD" has "USD" as currency and account "Bank USD" as default debit/credit account. In my test OpenERP want for us to give it a debit/credit in "EUR" and an amount currency in "USD". Worst, on the second line it proposes an amount currency calculated on the base of the EUR amount, for me it seems wrong. It should propose a debit or credit amount calculated on the USD amount currency. Does my setting are incorrect? How to make an entry on this journal if we only know the USD amount? All entries in USD bank should be done in USD and the conversion in EUR should be done automatically for accounting purpose. Does someone found a way to do that? Thanks
