Many thanks Peter!  :-) you are quite right that it was width of the state 
and b_state field in userdb that were causing the problem.

As soon as the [userdb...] tag in log_transaction was executed it had the 
effect of truncating [value state] and [value b_state]

Seems I was talking rubbish here - it was the [userdb...] tag in 
log_transaction that was causing the truncation as state and b_state in 
userdb were still varchar(10)
