Accounts show with $0 balance when sorting by Project on Trial Balance Report

When creating a Trial Balance Report, the General tab allows you to 'Exclude accounts with zero beginning balances and no activity' and 'Exclude accounts with no activity'.  With these boxes marked, if you are sorting by Project on the Format tab>> Sort/Break, accounts show on the report with $0 balances.

This happens with any combination of sorting by the Project, whether they are subtotaled by the Project or with no action and regardless of report filters.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.
