Pay Pal Pro Subscription creates profile without collecting payment

  1. Testing PayPal Pro Add-on (1.0 Beta 4) with subscription product in PayPal Sandbox. Recurring payment is set and selected as Total. Profile is created but no money is ever collected for the first recurring payment. Have tried adding a setup fee (initial payment) as a workaround but it made no difference, still $0.

    Curiously, the IPN always reports next payment date at 0200:00, which is past:
    next_payment_date=02:00:00 Jan 22, 2013 PST

    Creation time is correct:
    time_created=10:13:41 Jan 22, 2013 PST

    Is there any way to force first payment collection at start of subscription?

    Here are just the relevant pieces of IPN report:

    payment_cycle=Monthly&
    txn_type=recurring_payment_profile_created&
    next_payment_date=02:00:00 Jan 22, 2013 PST&
    initial_payment_amount=0.00&
    time_created=10:13:41 Jan 22, 2013 PST&
    period_type= Regular&
    test_ipn=1&
    product_type=1&
    amount_per_cycle=97.00&
    profile_status=Active&
    notify_version=3.7&
    amount=97.00&
    outstanding_balance=0.00&
    recurring_payment_id=I-KBHY0U8T1CKE&
    product_name=Monthly Charge&

    Thank you.
