Symptoms

As it is not possible to choose 'From start billing cycle' as start validity date of a balance in a charge offer, we have tried to set it at a specific date ( 01/01/2015 in our case).
We thought it would avoid having several sub-balance in ECE during rating, but it doesn't as there are sub-balance with various timestamp as start date in ECE balance cache:-

2015-01-01T11:18:22.000+01:00 and 2015-01-01T11:20:22.000+01:00 for example in the enclosed cache query after rating.

We were expecting that there would be only one balance with 2015-01-01T11:00:00.000+01:00.
