Even if Approval Framework is enabled, the PO is bypassing workflow, if under the Virtual Approver Control section the two check boxes are checked and grayed out.

Steps To Reproduce the Issue:

1. On the Purchasing Definition page, confirm that the Approval Framework has been initialized and that under the Virtual Approver Control section the two checkboxes are checked and grayed out. (Set Up Financials/Supply Chain>Business Unit Related>Purchasing>Purchasing   Definition>PO Change Options tab)
2. Open a PO that is in an Open status. (Main Menu>Purchasing>Purchase Orders>Add/Update PO)
3. Select the "Change Line" triangle icon.
4. Update the description on the line.
5. Save the Purchase Order.
6. The Purchase Order saves and the PO Status updates to Approved, bypassing workflow.
