The same solicitor is added to a payment multiple times.

If the same solicitor is listed as the current and prior solicitor on a prospect plan, the solicitor is added to payments multiple times when the payment is linked to an opportunity associated with the prospect plan. 
We're currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future patch or service pack.

Steps to Duplicate
