The CSV file served by my bank includes a header. When trying to skip it with the skip rule, Hledger throws an error indicating that the number of fields don't match. In my opinion, Hledger should not check skipped lines except for finding where they end.

The following is an example of the CSV header and a pair of transactions:

"Kontonummer:","1030653008 /  Internet-Konto"
"Von: ","26.03.2013"
"Bis: ","25.04.2014"
"Kontostand am 25.04.2014:",""
"Buchungstag","Wertstellung ","Buchungstext","Auftraggeber / Beguenstigter ","Verwendungszweck","IBAN / Kontonummer ","BIC / Bankleitzahl","Betrag (EUR)"

The following rule file triggers the error:
