Steps
See the costing error with the following steps BUT users could not replicate the issue at will:

  2. The find window appears
  3. Enter the query criteria.
  4. Press Find.
  5. Navigate to the Reason, Reference tab.
  6. Review the error code / error explanation.

Steps: Forcing the Issue
Support engineers were able to force the issue to happen with 2 scenarios. In scenario #1, the engineer used Help > Diagnostics > Examine to clear the account alias source id. The record saved and caused the data corruption. In scenario #2, the navigation including a backwards tab allowed the engineer to clear the source.

Scenario #1: Help > About
This is not a recommended approach but discussed here to show how the issue could be tested.
