commitment issue while making contract in purchasing cycle


We have an issue in commitment with budget.

prerequisites :

1- I have activated commitment management in controlling Area.

2- making statistical cost element for  GL accounts of the inventory.

3- making budget profile to control actual postings with apportioned network to control also planned values from project.

Cycle 1 :

Budget = 10000.

PR = 10000 then PO = 10000 :    the commitment = 10000 and I have no problem to post PO document. as the PO controlling document Making controlling document of PR = 0.

Cycle 2 that have the problem :

Budget = 10000.

PR = 10000 then contract with reference to PR the PO for the contract of 10000

Error while posting PO document as the budget exceeded by 10000.

after checking the cycle PR controlling document still exist and not = 0  debit WBS element with 10000. so the system can't post PO document which makes the commitment now double.
after deactivating the availability control and post the PO document i found that the commitment = 20000 (10000 for PR and 10000 for PO) and budget =10000 and by checking the PR i have found that the ordered quantity = 0 and i can make another PO for this PR.

Any Idea about how to solve this problem,

Thanks in advance,
