      Here are the ownership changes for __transaction_state-37:

      At 01:16:50, worker2 gains ownership of this partition and retains it till 01:19:08.

      On, the client, the 'AddPartitions' request constantly gets a CONCURRENT_TRANSACTIONS response from worker2 for 01:16:50 to 01:19:09 (when it finally gets a NOT_COORIDNATOR response due to brokers being shut down after test failure).

      The reason seems to be that the write of 'CompleteCommit' to the log by the TransactionMarkerChannelManager is not being retried after failure. Here is the tail of the log for the transactionalId in question 'my-second-transactional-id'

      It seems that the `TransactionManagerChannelManager` fails to retry the write of `CompleteCommit` when it fails initially. the `retryLogAppends` method has a debug log when messages are being retried, but this message is absent from the log. Could it be that the InterbrokerSendThread is in an inifinte poll? that certainly looks possible from the code.

      Further, since we return 'success' to the client after the `PrepareCommit` is written to the log, and return a `CONCURRENT_TRANSACTIONS` error on a future `AddPartitions` request, we never move out of the `CompleteCommit` state, resulting in a hung transaction.
