Process based on subobject with Start Condition including a virtual attribute does not auto-start.

Steps to Reproduce:

Example: Task object ( subobject of Investment) with wbsort attribute (virtual attribute)

2. Auto start condition: Task WBS Sort != Task WBS Sort [Previous Value]
3. Link the start and finish steps and validate and activate the process
4. Create a project and a few tasks.
5. Add the WBS Sort attribute to the task list view and note the values for the WBS Sort attribute
6. Open the project in Gantt PPM
7. Drag and drop the tasks in order to change the order to the tasks.
8. Go back to the task list and notice the WBS Sort attribute value has changed.
9. Open one of these tasks where the value has changed and get to the processes tab
