I downloaded the year's trades from my brokerage's "transaction history" area and through some kind of hocus-pocus managed to get the figures to comport with 1099-B. I then cobbled together a custom D-1 and got it to reflect the correct (according to my records) capital gain amount, which is substantially lower than the previous figure. Problem solved, but the question remains as to why GainsKeeper came up with the "unreasonable" capital gain figure.

Thanks to all who replied.
