Business rule incorrectly evaluates that the date on a record has been changed when the date has not changed.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Install com.snc.financial_planning_pmo.
2. Install demo data for the plugin com.snc.project_portfolio_suite.
3. Go to the Business Rules list.
4. Turn all Business Rules inactive, except the following two:
 - 'Update parent resource planned cost'
 - 'Update parent resource allocated cost'
5. Import the test business rule attached (this has a check to run only when start_date or end_date changes).
6. Enable Debug business rules.
7. Navigate to
8. Search for the project "HR Service Management Portal".
9. In the related lists of the project click on Edit in Sub projects.
10. Add "Consultant Off-boarding" from the slush bucket.
On saving notice that the test BR is run. It should not have run since neither the start_date nor the end_date fields have been changed.
