Error: The total amount must be equal to the sum of the amounts applied to commitments – when validating a pledge payment in Enhanced Revenue Batch

When entering a constituent with an outstanding pledge installment in to an Enhanced Revenue Batch, and entering the amount of the pledge payment, the Application field will automatically populate with the Pledge commitment.  After updating projected totals and validating, the Application field is cleared.  This causes the error when trying to commit the batch.
