Goal

Why is time entered using an element that is not included in the Earning Group, being counted towards the daily overtime threshold amount?  This results in incorrect overtime explosion.
Example to illustrate:

Earnings Policy definition:

 Type: Special Overtime
 Type     Earning Type     Hours
 -------------------------------------------------------
 Daily Earning     Regular Pay     8.000
 Daily Earning     Overtime Pay   999.000
 Holiday Earning     Holiday Work    999.000
 Weekly Earning    Regular Pay    40.000
 Weekly Earning    Overtime Pay   999.000
Enter a timecard with:
 DAY     Hours    Hours Type
 ------------------------------
 Thu     1.000     Supper Money
 Thu     2.000     Standby Pay
 Thu    10.000
Resulting explosion for the third line:
 Hours     Hours Type
 ------------------------------------
 6.000     Regular Pay     - This is incorrect!
 4.000     Overtime Pay     - This is incorrect!
Standby Pay should NOT take part in overtime calculation as indicated in the Earning Group.  The expected explosion is:
 Hours     Hours Type
 --------------------------------
 8.000     Regular Pay   
 2.000     Overtime Pay
