Hi Cristian,

I had to experiment a bit before I could reproduce this. There is indeed 
a bug: autocompletion in the jobs field doesn't distinguish between 
vendor and customer jobs. So when you start typing a job name which auto 
completes to a customer job, a customer invoice will be created (for the 
customer that owns the job) instead of a vendor bill. This is a side 
effect of bug 625505 [1].
