Payment Posting creates incorrect Accounting entries for an InterUnit Escheatment.
Expect the Accounting entries created for an InterUnit Escheatment to match the Accounting entries that are created for an InterUnit Cancelled Payment.  However, this is not the case.  The InterUnit Escheatment entries do not match the InterUnit Cancelled Payment entries.  As a result, once Journal Generator is run to create a Journal for the Escheated Payment, the Journal fails Combination Edits on the GL side since the chartfield combinations are not valid combinations on the GL side.
