Error: The authorization code " couldn't be saved: 'Payment service error: Unknown credit card type.' - when attempting to charge a sponsorship recurring gift payment

When attempting to charge a sponsorship recurring gift payment, a user may receive Error:  The authorization code " couldn't be saved: 'Payment service error:  Unknown credit card type.'  This is due to the fact that the credit card type is not being passed along to BBPS.  
We're currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future patch or service pack.  

Steps to Duplicate

1.  Log-in to Production.
2.  Go to Child Sponsorship, Child Sponsorship Search, and search for commitment.  
3.  On the Payment tab, click Edit next to Payment details.  Change your card type to any value other than Visa.  Save.  Edit again and change your card type back to Visa and Save.  This update is not sent to BBPS.  In BBPS they see the credit card with no Card Type.  If you update any other values other than card type, those changes are picked up in BBPS.
