When using a custom BN rule attached to CUST_BILL_NUMBER BN type, when creating consolidated Bills the BN generator skips one number.

It is expected to have the consolidated bill number generated as per the defined Rule

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. I have created a BN rule 3-12218827761 and set it up as DEFAULT.
2. The business rule definition is as below{r*:id=1:xml=CONSOLIDATION_TYPE}-AA/15P-{nnnnnn:contexts=1:start=1}
3. Go to Financials -> Billing Management -> Billing
4. Create consolidated bill out of bills.
5. Notice that OTM is skipping one number
