Serialization of custom IDOCs



I have a requirement to keep the order of inbound and outbound IDOCs. For this purpose I've implemented IDOC serialization by Object Type. I've customized ALE according to steps described at help doc:

I have also discovered there is predefined business process customization in SALE for HR master data distribution (my case). Thus, I have maintained serialization for HR MD input / output.

When I'm testing my integration, I block HR object by entring transaction and chosing particular object. Thus, coming IDOC fails with 51 status and error text "Object blocked". Next I leave the transaction and send another IDOC of the same type. I expect it to have status 66 as described in Serialization by Object Type help chapter, because its predecessor is not processed yet. But in reality the second one gets processed with 53 status, which is not ik for me.

One point that may be important - the IDOC I'm using is a custom one.

Could anyone point at my error or misunderstanding of the concept?
