Status for REPO should not be affected by imported journals

The customer is using period locking on company level for REPO.

When submission 1 is closed for the company, a company journal can be entered and this will not affect the status for submission 1. But if the same journal is imported through "Import General Leger Journals", the status is reset to processing, but the submission remains locked. Since the company cannot change this themselfes, an administrator has to unlock the company, run the reconciliation and ready-mark the company again, maybe for more than one submission.

Since we are commonly working with a first submission with accounts that may not be changed even by import (typically opening balances), this problem is increasing.

Please change the behaviour for imported journals to match how it is handled when entering them manually.
