Symptoms

--Problem Statement:
Rerating is not working properly for cycle events.

-- Steps To Reproduce:

1] Create pricing product with following details for /service/telco/gsm/telephony:
    - set cycle forward product with 20Euro as charge
    - grant 3000 free asia minutes per month start immediate,
    - set end date as 1 Accounting ccyle for free resources,
    - set proration to 'charge based on amount used for both purchase and cancel

2] Set your actg_dom (accounting day of month) to 1 in cm pin.conf
   

- fm_cust_pol actg_dom 1

3] Create an account on 09/09/2008 so the cycle charge will be applied from 09/09/2008 to 10/01/2008 i.e:14.66..

4] On the same day rerate the account from 09/09/2008.
     Rerating creates a back out adjustment for the cycle charge and also reapplies the total charge of 20Euro instead of the same as above 14.667.

It is wrong since there is no change in charge/price plan it should apply the same charge as before rerating.
