Scrapping WIP in an Avg Cost environment

We sometimes have an item in production that we wish to scrap before production is complete. Before the scrap transaction completes we are forced to post the item to inventory. If there is existing inventory of the item, the average cost is changed to accommodate the WIP value of the incomplete item. The result is that the scrap cost becomes the average cost instead of the accumulated WIP cost, and after the scrap transaction is complete the average cost of the existing inventory is changed. Has anyone else run into this situation, and is there a solution other than one involving multiple cost adjustments?
