Symptoms

Create an account on November 1st with a cycle forward product with monthly charge $4000. On November 15th, this product expires and another product with monthly charge $3000 take effect. On November 15th, change the billing date to 10th. Since November cycle becomes a long cycle, the expectation is the following result:

For the first portion proration, figure will be like this :

Dates               Nov.1st - Nov.15th
Event Charge    4000
Scale               0.466667
Proration          1866.667$
Total Days       14 Days /30

For the second portion proration, figure will be like this :

Dates               Nov.15th - Dec.10th 
Event Charge    3000 
Scale               0.833333 
Proration          2500.00$
Total Days       (16+9) Days /30

However the present system behavior for the first portion proration is like this  :
Dates               Nov.1st - Nov.15th
Event Charge    4000
Scale               0.456989
Proration          1827.96$

Pro-ration for the second portion is applying correctly.
