Symptoms

On :  7.5.0.8.0 version, Subscription Management

The user has BDOM=1. A product configured with monthly arrear charge, prorate_last as 'none' activated, and end date set exactly similar to starting of accounting cycle as 00:00:00 hours of 1st of a month after exactly 3 months from start date.

There should be charges for 3 months since the end date was not set in the middle of 3rd month but exactly after completion of 3rd month, and it is also the start of accounting cycle for 4th month from start date.

But, actual result was these charges have been applied only for 2 months and not applied on the 3rd month.

STEPS
-----------------------
1. 01.Feb.2016 - Create customer and subscription account with 1st as billing date
                           Purchase a deal/product which is configured with prorate_first='full' prorate_last='none' with
                           start date as 01.Feb.2016 00:00:00 and end date as 01.May.2016 00:00:00 .
2. 01.Mar.2016 - Do the billing for the customer and subscription account and charge for Feb period is applied.
3. 01.Apr.2016 -  Do the billing for the customer and subscription account and charge for Mar period is applied.
4. 01.May.2016 - Do the billing for the customer and subscription account and charge for Apr period is not applied.

The monthly arrear charge did not get applied for the last month.

With setting end date 1 second extra, i.e. 00:00:01 hours, the charge for 3rd month got applied.
Why does the charge for 3rd month not applied when the end date set to starting of 4th accounting cycle?
