When a deal is created from RPM vendor funded promotion linked to an existing Promotion created in the past, the deal active date defaults from the promotion start date, rather than the promotion component start date.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a new promotion component and link it to an existing promotion created with a start date in the past.
2. Add funding to the promotion component and check the 'Create Deals' check box.
3. Approve the promotion.
4. Check DEAL_HEAD table and note that the deal was created with active date set to the promotion start date rather than the promotion component start date.
