When a tax discrepancy on an item in the invoice is resolved using "Debit Memo - Tax Item Only", the invoice fails after running the Posting batch with below ERROR_MSG in IM_POSTING_DOC_ERRORS table:

"Header amount of xxx does not equal to total detail amount of yyy".

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a Purchase Order (PO) for 3 items and receive in full.
2. Create the invoice for all 3 items such that one item has Tax discrepancy and other item has quantity discrepancy.
3. Resolve the Tax discrepancy by choosing "System Tax" as correct and resolution "Debit Memo - Tax Item Only" for the item.
4. Resolve quantity discrepancy on the item through "Detail Matching" screen and by using "Debit Memo - Quantity".
5. Run the Rollup batch.
6. Run the Posting batch and notice that two Debit Memos are posted, but the invoice remains in the "MTCH" status.
