I am seeing the 'External Bank account already exists' error occurring for many customer accounts when trying to assign bank accounts.  I have followed the guidance in note 1130404.1 and deployed the suggested patches. I have also deployed the datafix from note 1370214.1, but the number of orphan bank accounts created are increasing.  How can we stop this occurring ?
