Things sounds like the old behavior of Emerald 2.1. It consolidated
incorrectly based on month boundaries, rather than on the actually
cycle. Emerald 2.2 corrects this problem and correctly consolidated on
the bondaries like you expect. One note, you may need to consolidate
on the next day (the 16th) rather than on the 15th, since the billing
cycle doesn't complete until after the 15th.
