Description:
e.g
start schema transaction
create logfile group
create undofile
commit schema trans; // crash

after a system restart, the undofile will remain on disk

How to repeat:
remove #if 0 in testDict -n Bug36072

Suggested fix:
When finding pending transactions during restart,
rebuild transaction state and run abortPrepare work-flow,
or possible a set of new function pointers e.g

- restartAbort
- restartCommit
- restartComplete

D2: can in some worst cases cause crash, but that is likely very rare
W3: backup/restore
I4: very slim time-window
