Beginning balance is negative for first month of reconciliation

I just had to undo a years worth of reconciliations - so now the account has never been reconciled. When I go to re-reconcile I'm seeing a negative beginning balance on the initial reconciliation screen. However, when I go to my bank register for that account, the opening balance/deposit matches the bank exactly. There are no other expenses in the register prior to the date of the opening balance entry that I see in the register.  And this is the first month the bank account is needing to be reconciled. Is there somewhere else I should be looking for this transaction that is throwing off the opening balance off?
