If there is only one split in the split editor, any edits to the memo field are lost when the changes are accepted.

This can be important because Paypal lists all of its records as a split transaction: one for cost and one for fees.  In the split editor, If the fee is zero, the split is irrelevant, and one may use the "Clear Zero" option.  This leaves only one entry in the split editor.  If a memo has been added to the single remaining split before leaving the split editor, it does not update the record memo, but rather it is completely lost.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the split editor for any non-split transaction.
2. Edit the memo field in the split editor for the sole transaction in the list.
3. Save.

Actual Results:  
The memo field has not been updated, and that the memo has been lost.

Expected Results:  
The memo field is updated.

I confirm this.

This is still present with 5.0 git head.  Oddly, it seems the memo IS saved in the split, but if I then open the split editor again, I am asked if I want to repalace memo "memo in spli" with memo "" in the other split.  If I say No, the memo in the split remains.  If I say Yes, it is cleared.  In neither case does it move that split memo to the main transaction memo, which might actually be reasonable, if there is only one split.

Update memo in non-split transaction when changed in split editor

The memo of a non-split transaction was not updated when it was modified
inside the split editor.

This change will keep the two locations in sync in this scenario.
