Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
The next_bill_t date for the subordinate account is getting changed without Bill being finalized. This happens when the Pay_type of the account is changed from 10001 to 10007 and the account is Due for billing.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The next_bill_t should not be changed.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. 04.06.2012 : Create hierarchy parent account p1 , child accounts s1 and s2. All with pay_type 10001 and bdom 4.
2. 05.07.2012 : Bill parent account p1. Bill should be finalized and dates in billinfo_t (next_bill_t) should be moved one period forward
3. 05.07.2012 : Call opcode PCM_OP_CUST_SET_BILLINFO to change pay_type of s2 to 10007, use CM that have billing_delay parameter set to 30. After that check billinfo_t of account s2 and its bills in bill_t. No bill should be finalized for this account, however dates in billinfo_t will be moved forward.
