Unable to cancel offline checkout

We are running an instance of Alfresco Community Edition on CentOS server (More setup details at the end).

One of our users had checked out a file for editing offline and is now unable to cancel the checkout (or upload a newer version to complete the process).

I have logged in as the admin user and face the same issue. To isolate and deal with this issue, I moved this file from its original site to a new site 'test'. I've tried several options that I could think of (cancel, check-in, deleting document via Alfresco Explorer, deleting site, using original creator id, clearing deleted items & cleaning contentstore.deleted etc.) without much success. Forum/Google search for similar issues has not helped either.

We are not sure of the exact steps that were followed to end up in this situation. Attempts to reproduce this problem have not succeeded either. Unfortunately, the original catalina logs had been cleared out before this problem was raised up to the administrators.

It appears that I could be dealing with some sort of DB corruption. A sample error log and screenshot of the file has been attached. I would appreciate any pointers or links to similar issues.

PS: Apart from this single issue, our experience with Alfresco so far has been excellent. Our repository size is more than 10GB with several active users. System has been up and running for almost an year now without any other issue.
