I think this is related to the change I did recently. Or maybe it
existed before that too.. I find the code a bit difficult to understand.

So trans->box is allocated and then tried to be opened. If opening
fails, the trans->box is still left there (because some other code still
wants to use it). But nothing remembers that opening it failed, so I
guess the code goes to act_store_execute() with trans->box != NULL, but
also not opened. Then it fails when it tries to create a transaction.
