Symptoms

Using Payables, invoice validation is being run - the purchase order is opened and the action history is showing that it was opened by the supplier name/supplier contact.

Steps to reproduce

2. Create an invoice in payables matching to the PO.
 - Partially match to the PO
 - Do not validate the invoice

3. Assign the Payables Manager to the Allied/welcome user

4. Move back to the PO and close the PO at the header level.
 - The PO is now partially billed and closed

5. Select Payables Responsibility
 - Run the Invoice Validation program

6. Check the PO - find it is now reopened
 - confirm the action history shows the supplier as the actioner
