WS14000145 Approval N-Step for PO skips others approvers

Hi All:

Here is my scenario.

WS14000145 was working fine before SP08 application to SRM SERVER 500 component.

Now (after sp08):

You create a PO (based on a SC of course) and because of the amount of the purchase it needs to be approved by several people, let's say John, Mike (john's boss), and Peter (mike`s boss)

When you create the PO it shows the authorization flow like this: 1st approver John, 2nd approver Mike, 3rd approver Peter; and it is retained awaiting for all three approvals.

Now all three of them got an entry in their authorizations pool.

The problem is: when John authorizes the PO the workflow skips the others approvers and the PO gets fully approved. And the PO disappears from 2nd and 3rd approvers inbox, because it is already approved by 1st approver.

The Org Structure is well defined, 3rd approver Mike is a Director, 2nd approver Mike is a Manager, and 1st approver John is an employee. (also it was working fine before the sp08)

Any ideas please.
