Getting duplicate invoice numbers on invoices for multi-customer projects.
It appears that this has to do with the order of processing unapproved drafts.

Customer starts by approving the drafts for a multi-customer project, saving after all drafts for this project have been approved.
Then customer releases the first draft and saves.
Customer gets an error message that states: "Need to approve/release all draft invoices having the same set".
However, after clicking OK users are allowed to release and save the next draft. This results in a duplicate AR Invoice Number.

Customer realizes that this is not the proper way to process multi-customer drafts, but the fact that this is possible in 12.2.5 suggests a bug.
