Symptoms


When adding accumulated depreciation, depreciation was removed in the period in which the accum was added. How is this amount calculated and what does it represent?

Expected Behavior
-------------------------
Expect to be able to add accumulated depreciation and to either not have depreciation removed or to have a predictable amount of depreciation removed.

Steps
--------------
This issue can be replicated by performing the following steps:
1) Create an asset.
2) Enter accumulated depreciation for the last period of the 1st year of depreciation.
3) Calculate the depreciation.
