In an environment where nonLinearRating is enabled, when one purchased a first usage enabled top-up or a normal top-up in an ongoing data session (one time, item type charge offer), Elastic Charging Engine (ECE) and Billing Revenue and Management (BRM) report a null pointer exception.

2) Initiate a CCR-U request

4) See error null pointer exception error in cm.pinlog and ecs log.
