In some X/Open XA environments, a transaction may become detached from its thread of control (usually to become attached to a different thread of control). SAP ASE permits transactions to remain in a detached state for the length of time specified by dtm detach timeout period. After this time has passed, SAP ASE rolls back the detached transaction.
