[gold-users] Changing debit order possible?

That is an interesting issue. My best off the cuff answer would be to 
make the credit account expire one minute later than the debit account. 
That would probably accomplish what you want since earliest expiring is 
the highest precedence qualifier (if the admin credit account is tied to 
the same project, then a minute difference would suffice. If it is tied 
to ANY project, then offset it by 10 minutes.)
