[Koha] Accounting transactions in Koha

In an accounting journal you usually enter a line (date, amount, reason
etc) and it stays there as it is so you can go back anytime and look how
the line looked, or you can calculate the sum of some given users,
accounttypes etc over a certain period.
I was highly surprised to see in Koha these lines are not consistent but
instead over time they are changing not only the original amount but
also the date! For example if accountline_id 1 originally had a date of
2015-10-01 and an amount of $ 2.00 it may have changed its date to
2015-11-03 and an amount of $ 3.00. Can someone please explain what
exactly happens with the money amounts and dates that are listed in the
table "accountlines"? Is this described somewhere?
It is absolutely necessary for us to have some kind of proof how much
money was taken in cash by the library every day and also over certain
periods of time. What we in fact need is an accounting journal where ALL
the accounting transactions are comprehensible over time. Does such a
thing exist in Koha at all? How do other libraries handle this problem?
Kind regards, Michael
