Users are running an unconstrained Mfg/MRP plan and they have by-product supplies. The by-product supplies are being included in the plan output as expected and they are pegging to demands. However, there's still excess planned orders being created that are pegging to excess and over the plan horizon, the total number of by-product supplies will be the total in excess PAB at the end of the horizon. Example:

Plan run date = 23-JUN-2015
Org = UBD:WEI
Item = RQ CRTSM60 is a by-product of item = SMEXPORT60
Item = RQ CRTSM60 is a component of next higher assembly = 9040_UNIT (1 per)
On hand = 0
No Safety Stock

There's a by-product supply qty = 1 due 23-JUN-2015. PAB = 1
The first demand for this item is qty = 2 due 26-JUN-2015
However there are 2 individual planned orders for supply qty = 1 each due 26-JUN-2015. This still leaves PAB = 1
Then on 30-JUN-2015 another by-product supply is due and demand = 2. However, again 2 planned orders qty = 1 each are created. Now PAB = 2
So while the by-products are being used as supply, excess planned orders are being created which peg to excess

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect no excess planned orders

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run RP unconstrained plan with by-product supplies and demands created for same item
2. By-products are used but excess planned orders are still created
