Sometimes return and sales transactions go missing from the Backoffice database when the database system goes offline.

Steps to Reproduce:

Scenario 1 :

1. Perform a sales transaction and link a new customer by creating new customer.
2. Perform a return using the same customer from step 1.
3. Get the SQL Queries from logs.
4. Now perform a sale and link a customer by reusing the customer created in step 1.
5. Get the Update query that was identified in step 3, and run one of the update queries (similar to the following) WITH AUTOCOMMIT set to FALSE

 UPDATE PA_CT SET ID_EM = '', LCL = null, STS_CT = 1 WHERE ID_CT = '02015489' AND ID_PRTY = 489
 Note:  Do NOT commit the above query.

6. Do multiple transactions using the same customer, keeping track of all transaction numbers.
7. Check the store server database and see if all the transactions made it to the database.  Some transactions will be missing.
