Because it was considered to be neither.  It's also not a server error.
I can definitely accept the argument that it should be logged with more
feeling.

Yes.  You don't really know whether the transaction committed or not.
It's much worse if multiple storages are involved.

Restarting wouldn't necessarily make any difference, although it
is probably a good precaution.

Absolutely.  At a minimum, the client doesn't know whether the transaction
committed or not. If there were multiple databases, it might have
committed in one,
but not the other.

This is why I tend to view transaction timeouts as a last resort and
set the limit
much higher, 5 minutes.
