Already approved PO lines linked to a Contract Purchase Agreement (CPA) or to a Global Blanket Purchase Agreement (GBPA) are not taken into account verifying the amount limit

Steps to Reproduce:

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1.Go to Contract Purchase Agreement and check the released amount.
The released amount is a sum
Amount limit on this CPA is a sum that is greater than released amount
2.Change a Purchase Order (PO) already linked to the CPA and add a new line so that the total
amount for the CPA stays below the amount limit. Go to PO and add a new PO line linked to the CPA with an amount
Now PO is in Requires Reapproval status
Save and do not approve the PO yet.
3.Now check the amount released for the CPA.
The amount released is the same at step 1, which is correct. The new line is not
yet summed up to the total amount released.
4.Now create a new PO linked to the CPA (so that the amount limit of the CPA
is reached).
5. Approve PO from step 4
Click ok. The PO is approved and a signal for reaching the amount limit
is not generated. This is a validation issue.
6. Now check the amount released for the CPA again: Amount released is bigger than amount limit
7. Now go to PO from step 2 and try to approve this PO , but this error is
The total amount released exceeds the agreement Amount Limit.

The same are also for Purchase Orders (POs) linked to a GBPA.
