When a period, comma, 0, or 1 entered into the item barcode field in the GUI Circulation Loan screen, the loan occurs for a particular item which does *not* contain such a barcode and *does* have a correct (15-digit) barcode.
./xxx50/tab/tab100 has, either explicitly or by default, a setting of ITEM-BARCODE-OR-CALL-NO=Y. And incorrect 1-character values (due to scanner malfunction or operator error) can be matched on by blank or 1-character call numbers.
1. Specify ITEM-BARCODE-OR-CALL-NO=N in each ./xxx50/tab/tab100.
2. Restart the pc_server(s).
From the tab100 header ITEM-BARCODE-OR-CALL-NO entry:
! Y = Item retrieval by call number is enabled
! N = Item retrieval by call number is disabled
