It would be nice if Quicken didn't even populate the 'Memorized Payee' list with every transaction. I feel that unless a 'Memorized Payee' transaction is locked, multiple entries are not necessary. Add a separate entry only if the new transaction differs from the 'locked' transaction, otherwise, just replace the previous transaction.
