Symptoms

Our processes have a Exception handling with one automatic activity followed by a Sub-process call (or Subflow). In the outgoing argument mappings of the sub-process, the selected action is mapped into the predefined action variable. The problem is that when an exception occurs and the participant selects to retry (action=BACK), the instance enters in an infinite loop, going to the activity that produced the exception, triggering the exception, going to the exception handling and when it gets to the sub-process call, it does not create a new sub-process instance, but returns directly to the main flow, where the exception was produced (as is action=BACK was performed).
