When attempting to delete a line on a po that has a comment -- we receive an error and data confliction error.
the following error occurs.


 "Changes conflict with another data item. (18,5)
When trying to save your changes, the system found a conflict with other information in the database.
This problem may be because of changes made simultaneously by another user. Make a note of the changes you have made, then cancel the page. Reload the page and look for changes. Ensure that your changes are still appropriate, then retry them.

If the problem persists, it may be due to an application programming error and should be reported to technical support staff.
This message occurs when a key is changed on an existing record, and the new set of key values conflicts with an existing record. The application should ensure that any changes to keys result in a unique record."
