Created on invoice and created distribution on a code combination, started the workflow. At the time the invoices has the approval status Initiated we change the invoice.

After the modification we are able to start a new workflow (invoice id _2) for this invoice and at that point there are two active workflows for one invoice (id)

We should not have apinvapr flows for the same invoice(id)
