Hmmm, typically I would throw in a note about the future here,
but since it would open up a whole different can of worms, I'll
just let you make conclusiong. :)

I don't follow you here? A new signup SHOULD get thier first
invoice in the mail. Are you referring to someone that pays
immediately upon signup? Paying an invoice marks an invoice as
sent and thus it shouldn't get emailed.

Its one of those Beta 2.2 things. I am pretty sure the latest 2.2
does that. 2.1 only supported the extend and not the limit.
