    Execute finderr utility:

    finderr 78

    You should see:

    -78 Deadlock situation detected/avoided.

    An operating-system error code with the meaning shown was unexpectedly
    returned to the database server. If the error recurs, please note all
    circumstances and contact Technical Support at

    Under AIX, this code means connection timed out.
