Foreign currency payment accounting is creating multiple gain/loss lines using the same account.

Created AP payment to settle 1 Invoice.
Exepected the system to create 1 Exchange Gain for $1.7
instead system created 7 lines for Exchange Gain . The total is correct $1.7
When transfer to GL, we also get 7 lines.
