Symptoms

Scenario uses multi-billinfos. During Account creation time, several billinfos are created, and default billinfo is suspended (SUSPEND_BILLING). After running several billing cycles pin_bill_day, a new billinfo is created. Bills (Amount Null) are created from the first cycle to the current cycle, where no bill was expected.

-- Steps To Reproduce:

1) With Customer Center, create a new account with configured product.
    Product is a MCF product with "In Advance Billing" of 1 month, Cycle Fee "Apply on Billing Date" unchecked.
    Proration setting is for Purchase: Do not charge for this cycle and Cancel: Charge for the entire cycle.
 
    A second bill unit will be added (Multi Bill options)

2) Set time to next BDOM

3) Run pin_bill_day

4) Suspend billing on the bill unit "Bill Unit(1)" as following :

 
10) Check the new billunit(3). Bills have been created for the new billinfo to be synchronized with the current cycle.

It was expected that the new bill unit(3) was created in the current cycle instead of the old cycle of the default bill unit, and so no bill was expected.
