Processes get into an aborting state and does not progress any further after cancelling a running process
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Create an sample process on timesheet that triggers when a timesheet is submitted.
2. Create a post condition on start step so that the process waits.
eg: process on timesheet object with postcondition thisTimesheet.status = approved or thisTimesheet.status = returned.
3. Submit multiple timesheets so that in Processes - Initiated tab we see multiple processes running (i.e. waiting for condition).
4. Select 5 running processes and click Cancel and confirm
Expected : All 5 processes should be moved to ABORTED state.
Actual: 1 or 2 processes from the selected 5 are stuck in ABORTING state (This doesn't happen every time but easily reproducible over multiple attempts)

Component : CA PPM APPLICATION ADMIN, STUDIO, XOG & PROCESSES.
