Expected:

existing position in stock XYZ, basis $10 per share
sell to open a covered call option on stock XYZ for $2
buy to close the covered call at $1
Quicken Premier Windows should adjust the cost basis of stock XYZ to $11 per share

Observed:

in the scenario above, Quicken Premier Windows does not adjust the cost basis of stock XYZ
instead, I am forced to keep track of cost basis manually
