Simple workaround:

Create an mulit-column index on transactiontypeid, transactionid.

SELECT transactionid FROM cbtransaction 
WHERE transactiontypeid=0
ORDER BY transactionid DESC LIMIT 1;

This approach will use the index.

Of course, if the reason you are selecting the max id is to get the next id, 
there are much better ways to do that.
