Issue:
The proxy task is calculating as the wrong number of days which is incorrect based on the start and finish dates. 

Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Create a project, Project A with a total duration of 2 days (4/12-4/13) 
2. Create a second project, Project B 
3. Add Project A as a subproject of Project B 
4. On the master project, Project B, go to the Task list or PPM Gantt and verify that the proxy task created for the subproject has a duration of 2 days 
5. Go to the properties of the subproject, Project A, and extend the finish date to 4/20 (the total duration is now 7 days) 
6. Go to the task list page or the PPM gantt for the master project, Project B 

Expected Results: The duration for the subproject proxy task should now be 7 days. 
Actual Results: The duration for the subproject proxy task remains at the old duration of 2 days. - The dates however have correctly updated to show 4/13-4/20. 
Cause:
Caused by DE40407
Resolution:
DE40407 has been fixed on our 15.4.1 release. 

The workaround on affected versions is to remove the subproject from the master project and re- add it. This will force the proxy task duration to recalculate.
