Thanks JABoa, for answering my (yet unasked) question.

Yet another reason that owning mutual funds is a royal pain. Last year I had to file Sch D because of some silly capital gains distributions in the fund I owned. Sold it this time last year (which made the initial purchase long term), but had reinvested my dividends. So it seems right to say that I have to list the reinvestments under "short term" and the initial purchase under "long term". But I can lump all the "short term" transactions together on one line?

Ugh. Individual stocks have proven to be about 1000 times easier (as well as more profitable).
