Symptoms

While rerating the rerated events are created with different type other than the event type of original event.
For an unbilled account, when the events are re-rated , the rerated events are created with the type adjustment.  Actually it should be the type of original event.  Let say the original event is /event/delayed/session/telco/gsm/voice, the rerated event is created as /event/delayed/session/telco/gsm/voice.  And the item created is /item/adjustment instead of /item/voice_usage.
Because of this for the same event, the customer is not able to rerate more than once with the OOB pin_event_extract utility.

Replication steps:

1. Create an account with GSM Plan. Pass service usage, rate the service usage and then run rerating using pin_event_extract utility.
2. Now, move pvt (pin_virtual_time) 1 month ahead and run pin_bill_day, then move the pvt to 2-3 days ahead, modify the rate from Pricing Center, restart services and then run pin_rerate, so that /item/adjustment gets  created.
3. Now, run the pin_event_extract utility with only account number and  impact_category in pin_event_extract.cfg file.
