Record Locking WIthout any user connected cannot be resolved


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

Windows 2012 Server Professional 64 bit

Description of the issue

I run thru a script with the debugger and got to a point where a find was involved - the find never stopped (this only happens via debugger) - data viewer was on second tab - no SQL query there on open records - so i disconnected the client via admin console but the open record that client had opened never closed on the server - not even after the disconnect timeout from server - no access reported - no user at all on server

Steps to reproduce the problem

run debugger thru a script where a record is opened in one window then in another opened window a find is involved and data viewer opened second tab - if perform find with cancel option is displayed disconnect client after cancel is ignored and find never proceeds via admin console.

Expected result

if client is disconnected thru admin console - record should not be locked by this user anymore - user also gets signed out in admin console - no display of this user - but attempt to edit that opened record gives error message that the record is still open by the disconnected user.

Actual result

record is locked - even no one has access to entire server

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

error 301 if scripted - or dialog box: Userx is modifying this record ..

the load is not high - 2 files one 5 MB - the other 2.2 GB
