Recording a contribution that completes a pending payment should update Date Received
I know the long-term solution is #43 - remove redundant fields from the Contribution entity - but this seems worthwhile as a short-term fix.
Pending payments require a "Date Received" - which is a bit counterintuitive but necessary because of the pre-Civi 4.3 data model. However, recording a payment to complete a contribution should update the Date Received.
