The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Create an hierarchy account with one non-paying child.
2. stop_eai_js to force an error while running billing
3. Run pin_bill_accts script to bill  both parent and child accounts.
4. Billing will fail and billing_status in billinfo is updated to 4.
5. start_eai_js
6. Run pin_bill_accts with -retry option

Expected Results:
pin_bill_accts with -retry option should not crash.

Actual Result:
pin_bill_accts dumps core
