Summary0007104: merchant logs a 500 response from the exchange even though a merchant DB error occurred
Descriptionin ..._post-orders-ID-pay.c, we call

      resume_pay_with_error (pc,

when we get a hard error from our database. This subsequently causes a log message that makes it *look* like there was an error with the exchange interaction, even when that is not the case.

I don't see why you say that. 500 is clearly an internal error, and the EC also points to OUR database. 502/504 are used for exchange errors. The logging is also pretty clear. I'm changing the hint to "insert_deposit" as that is the database interaction. But I don't see what else to do here.

In resume_pay, we log the following message:

              "Resuming /pay handling as exchange interaction is done (%u)\n",

Thus when the merchant experiences an internal database problem, we log that we got a 500 in an interaction with the exchange. *That's* the confusing part.

Well. Read the message: the exchange interaction is done. *OUR* HTTP request status is 500. response_code is always what WE return, not what we got from the exchange. Anyway, I've clarified the log statement in e3e693d..3b9e74b
