A Responsibility context change initiates an Organization context change depending on the value of the profile 'MO: Operating Unit'.

Once a Responsibility context change occurs in alternate times, i.e.

- 1st resp context sets org context correctly
- 2nd resp context resets org context incorrectly
- 3rd resp context sets org context correctly
