[Koha] double fines

this is correct. Koha doesn't 'add the new fine' it always recalculates
it from the due date. So if you pay a fine without returning or renewing
the item, it will be back the next day.

I current development would allow to renew at the time of the payment:

*BugĀ 23051*

Optionally renew fine accruing items when all fines on item are paid off

Hope this helps,
