For example, when you manually select ZFX.AX on finance.yahoo.com and the pick 'download data' (which uses the same interface that F::YQ uses) you get an empty .csv file. So given empty data, there is little we can do. Please file a bug report with Yahoo! Finance. There is a 'how to contact us' link somewhere that I used in the past...
