Symptoms

-- Problem Statement:

Find when retro process calculates negative hours differently

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect that retro process should calculate negative hours in same way as positive hours

-- Steps To Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Retro process leaves a .03 balance in vacation taken element.
2. Three vacation taken entries of 8 hours each resulted in
24 hours total vacation taken.
3. Do the retro with 3 vacation taken entries of -8 hours each.
4. The pay value (-8 * rate) gets put into the element entry.
5. It appears to trunc at 2 decimals, rather than round up.
So each entry is .01 short.
