Symptoms

When one cycle discount expires, Rating engine messes scale values for other valid cycle discounts. The three discounts are configured as sequential discount.

Billing date - Aug 1, 2012
Cycle Discount "A" valid till - Aug 3, 2012
Cycle Discount "B" valid forever
Cycle Discount "C" valid forever

When billing is run on Aug 1, 2012, cycle_start for cycle discount "B" and "C" is set to  Aug 3 , 2012 that coincides with the end date of cycle discount "A".

Consequently, the base charge that is sent to the discounting pipeline is incorrect.

The following three discounts are configured as sequential discount with the same priority, the start_t got set to Aug 3, when it should be Aug 1.
