Try - it's probably there somewhere.

That error ordinarily means that the client killed his process (or
shutdown his PC) while it was connected to the database. That would
account for the transaction rollback without an error, but would not
explain the mystery. If I were you, I'd beat the users until they
admit their malfeasance - though that discourages repeat business.
