JKEYED Behavior (Deprecated)
Writing to a JKEYED file while other transactions are in progress can sometimes result in an !ERROR=0 (Busy) even though the record being written is not locked. This is because another incomplete transaction is preventing the write from updating one of the key chains. When this occurs, it is necessary to rollback and restart the transaction to prevent the system from deadlocking.
