> We have noticed that arjuna leaks transactions when something 'unexpected' happens during tx aborting. The transaction stays in 'aborting' state while it does notify TxLIsteners that the tx has ended. 
> This can be reproduced as follows: 
> * A TX is started and both a DB (last)resource and horntq (XA) resource get enlisted. The tx takes a long time and times out. 
> * Arjuna reaper thread notices the time out and starts a worker thread to cancel the TX. 
> * Before the worker thread can 'abort' the hornetq XA resource, the arjuna worker thread is interruped (txReaperCancelWaitPeriod expires) by arjuna
> * Since the worker thread is interruped, the hornetq XA resource throws an 'HornetQInterruptedException'
> * This unexpected exception causes arjuna to notify registered javax/transaction/Synchronization's (and return DB connection to the pool), without ending the Tx. 
> From then on, jboss logs are full of: 
> Trying to start a new transaction when old is not complete: Old: < formatId=131077, gtrid_length=29, bqual_length=36, tx_uid=0:ffff40bab98c:1f71a485:5335ece7:3625a31, node_name=1, branch_uid=0:ffff40bab98c:1f71a485:5335ece7:3625bbc, subordinatenodename=null, eis_name=java:/XAOracleDS >, New < formatId=131077, gtrid_length=29, bqual_length=36, tx_uid=0:ffff40bab98c:1f71a485:5335ece7:3641efc, node_name=1, branch_uid=0:ffff40bab98c:1f71a485:5335ece7:36420a1, subordinatenodename=null, eis_name=java:/XAOracleDS >, Flags 0
> Although the root cause is a misbehaving hornetq resource, I think arjuna should be a bit more resilient.
