The builtin GET_ITEM_PROPERTY (item, DATABASE_VALUE) returns the wrong value if that item has a changed uncommitted value. This is incorrect according the online guide which states


For a base table item that is part of a database record whose status is QUERY or UPDATE, Database_Value returns the value that was originally fetched from the database. When a fetched value has been updated and then subsequently committed, Database_Value returns the committed value.

In this case the returned value is the changed "uncommitted" value.
