PO reopen process does not restore the value back to Close for already closed PO lines

When a PO is reopened, the cancel status for a PO line is updated back to the value at the time of PO close. Which means if a PO has 2 lines one in 'Closed' status and the other in 'Approved' status, PO Header status is 'Dispatched'. When this PO closed all the lines are closed and the PO header status goes to 'Complete'.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

5. Budget check PO. Go to: Menu > Purchasing > Purchase Order > Budget Check Purchase Order
6. Reopen PO. Menu > Purchasing > Purchase Order > Reconcile Pos > Reopen POs
7. PO line 2 reopened and should not
