Description:
Truncate table in a stored procedure locks the tables.

How to repeat:
CREATE PROCEDURE `dbpos`.`uputest`()
begin
truncate table slsruntimemap;

insert into slsruntimemap
(
lmapid
)
values
(
1
);
end

I get the following error message;

ERROR 1192 (HY000): Can't execute the given command because you have active locked tables or an active transaction;

A workaround is to change the procedure to the following (however this will cause issues with any auto-incrementing columns in the tables as they will not be reset)

CREATE PROCEDURE `dbpos`.`uputest`()
begin
delete from slsruntimemap;

insert into slsruntimemap
(
lmapid
)
values
(
1
);
end

Suggested fix:
Find out why TRUNCATE TABLE is keeping the tables locked.
