Negative per diem amounts created when meal deductions exceed the per diem amount for a day and even when 0 minimum reimbursement is set in the policy 

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Policy schedule with Per diem for the day is 24 euros and the following free meals

Expenses Setup -> Per Diem -> Per Diem Schedule Details -> Periods and Rates: Enter Per Diem Policy Schedule Details ->Standard Rates

Enter Free meals values

breakfast is 4,80 eur
lunch is 9,60 eur
dinner is 9,60 eur

Also make sure there is a minimum reimbursement specified 

2. Create an Expense Report using the above schedule.

1) Use the location and use the meal deductions as well.
2) Make sure the total claim leads to the negative amount.

Check the reimbursement , shows negative.

When added with the other days the 2,40 is deducted from the total; Do not want the employee reimbursement to be reduced overall because they received more meals than they would have gotten in their per diem.
