Goal

Delayed billing is enabled after a few years of operation. Items created when partial billing is triggered on the next bill cycle does not belong to any bill object (bill_obj_id0=0) and so does not get included in any bill. Running pin_bill_accts at 00:00 of the actg_cycle_dom still creates items, particulary /item/misc with bill_obj_id0=0 when partial billing is triggered.

Aside from manually patching the item table, we need a solution to fix this problem.
