Goal

The Balance Group Buckets are not created properly when purchases a product which has Advance billing.

Example:
Create a product with daily cycle forward event with daily free resources and has the advance billing option set to 7 days.

- When purchases this product for the first time on 18th of June, the valid from and to should have the daily bucket with free resources created from 18th to 27th.  But a single bucket is created with free resources valid from 18th and 27th of June.

- Move the pin_virtual_time to 27th and call the subscription cycle forward opcode, a single bucket is created with free resources with valid from 27th of June and to 5th July.

- Move the pin_virtual_time to 5th of July and call the subscription cycle forward opcode. Now it is created individual buckets with each day from 5th to 13th of July.

-Move the pin_virtual_time to 13th July and call the subscription cycle forward opcode, a single bucket is created with free resources valid from 13th to 21st of July.

so it is inconsistent.
