I have a budget for a category, "Shopping", that is setup to include deposits. Currently my CCB budget is saying that I've spend zero dollars this month which is not correct. When I click on the budget item and then link to see the actual transactions for the month, it shows the transactions and the total for the month is not zero. I did the refresh several times and that has not made any difference. I did notice that if I edit the budget, and then unselect and select again the include deposits checkbox, after I hit edit budget to accept, the total then displays correctly. However, if I then click refresh to the page, it goes back to zero.

If you have 'Include Deposits' option enabled and the deposits are greater than the withdrawals, your spent will show 0.

With that option enabled, the formula works like this:

Amount Spent = (Sum of deposits)+(Sum of withdrawals)
If amount spent is greater than 0 (aka, you deposited 200 but spent 100), the amount spent is 0.

That is likely the reason I'm seeing zero. Although there still is the problem that after you edit the budget it will temporarily show the total spent as only the withdrawls until you click refresh, then it resorts and recalculates. Would be nice to recalculate automatically after accepting the edit.
