Goal

In the below scenario, the valid_from is not set correctly for a non currency resource :

 *  create a product with MCF (monthly cycle forward) and impacting 3 resources as follows :
1000001 -- P flag checked -- amount is 500
1000002 -- P flag checked -- amount is (-500)
1000003 -- P flag unchecked -- amount is 0

case 1 - NOT working correctly
========
*  03 sep : create account with a dummy plan
*  13 sep : purchase above product and observe valid_from for the 3 resources above :

1000001   13-SEP-12 05:30:00  
1000002   13-SEP-12 05:30:00  
1000003   03-SEP-12 17:30:59  

case 2 - working correctly
========
*  03 Sep : now make below change for resource 1000003 :

   1000003 -- P flag unchecked -- amount is (-10)

*  03 sep : create account with a dummy plan
*  13 sep : purchase above product and observe valid_from for the 3 resources above :

1000001   13-SEP-12 05:30:00  
1000002   13-SEP-12 05:30:00  
1000003   13-SEP-12 05:30:00

Observation
=========
The valid_from is set correctly only if there is a positive or negative value in scaled amount field, rather than zero.

Expectation
=========
In case 1 above, it is expected that the valid-from is set to 13 sep , instead of 03 Sep
