      [1mlfc_starttrans  [22mstarts  transaction  mode.   The connection to the Name
      Server is kept open until one of  the  DB  update  operation  fails  or
      [1mlfc_aborttrans  [22mor  [1mlfc_endtrans  [22mis  explicitly called.  If all the DB
      update operations between [1mlfc_starttrans [22mand [1mlfc_endtrans [22mare  success-
      ful,  a  COMMIT  is  done.   If  any DB update operation fails or if an
      explicit [1mlfc_aborttrans [22mis done, a ROLLBACK is done.   The  [4mcomment[24m  is
      logged in the server log.

      operation failed. In the latter case, [1mserrno [22mis set appropriately.
