Issue: inv_perf_features flag not behaving as expected

The online document ( says:

To improve invoicing performance:

   Open the CM configuration file (BRM_Home/sys/cm/pin.conf).

   Set the inv_perf_features entry to the appropriate value:

   - fm_inv inv_perf_features FlagValue

   where FlagValue is a bitmap flag that specifies the details to exclude from your invoices. Each bit position controls a specific feature. To use multiple features, you must OR the bitmaps. For example, to exclude balance impact details, device details, and tax total details from your invoices, set FlagValue to 0x00003010.

       0x00000010 excludes balance impact details from invoices.

       0x00000800 improves search performance.

       0x00001000 excludes device details from invoices.

       0x00002000 excludes tax totals from invoices.

       0x00004000 excludes plan, deal, product pricing details from invoices.

       0x00008000 excludes balance group details from invoices.

   Save and close the file.

   Stop and restart the CM. See "Starting and Stopping the BRM System" in BRM System Administrator's Guide.

After following the instructions to exclude unnecessary invoice details (using - fm_inv inv_perf_features 0x00001000), the device details are still present in the flist of the invoice.

Also, it appears that 0x00000010, the default flag, does not exclude balance impact details. Rather, it includes them.

Steps to reproduce:

1.Created new account with plan "Default" (blank plan, no services/devices/deals/products)
2. Purchased a deal
3. Ran "Bill Now" on that account
4. Generated the invoice with pin_inv_accts
5. Viewed the invoice, saw device details

CM's pin.conf setting:

- fm_inv inv_perf_features 0x00001010
