Symptoms

The following error occurs while deleting items that are still in workflow in Review state.

csUnableToExpireOrUnexpire(<contentid>) Unable to expire document '<contentid>' when it is in Release State '(Err)'.


Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a workflow that would put items into a review state:
2. Checkin a content item into a framework folder.  Tried deleting item from Content Info page, but received appropriate message "Unable to delete revision for '<content ID> ...'"
3. Tried deleting the same item by selecting "Actions"->"Delete" from folder page, and received the "csUnableToExpireOrUnexpire(<contentid>) Unable to expire document '<contentid>' when it is in Release State '(Err)'." message.

NOTE: Clicking OK will delete the folder information from content item.  Therefore, the content item won't show up in folder and a search will be needed to find content item.
