Symptoms

On 7.5 PS4, the following issue has been found with Rerating:-

Issue:
Selective Rerating on monthly cycle arrear fee event is also triggering billing time discount.

Steps to reproduce:
1). 01/Jan/2014: Create and account and purchase iptv product with cycle arrear charges and some valid bill time discount
2). 01/Feb/2014: Run partial billing
3). 11/Feb/2014: Run final bill (Billing delay period is 10 days)
4). 11/Feb/2014: Create a file with "/event/billing/product/fee/cycle/cycle_arrear"
5). 11/Feb/2014: Selective Rerate all accounts with "/event/billing/product/fee/cycle/cycle_arrear" event with date set as 01/25/2014

Expected Result:
Only charges generated with the "/event/billing/product/fee/cycle/cycle_arrear" event should be rerated.

Actual Result:
Rerating of "/event/billing/product/fee/cycle/cycle_arrear" is also triggering "/event/billing/cycle/discount" event resulting in wrong item amounts (as the billing time discount previously applied was not backed out).

Business Impact:
Complete rebill scenario is failing due to this.
