When two customers check out concurrently using a voucher that has a usage limit of one, the voucher can be used twice.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start demo site, create two customers, create/pick test product, create test voucher with usage limit of 1.
  2. Both customers add the product to their baskets. Perform a checkout concurrently, apply voucher right before placing the order. Make sure both customers finish checkout (click the Place Order button) as close to the same time as possible.

We have reproduced this behavior on a single machine, by performing the above steps with one customer in one browser window and another customer in a second browser window.

Because this bug depends on concurrent execution, it may be helpful to introduce additional delay between the server and database. If connecting to the database using unix sockets, the following script can act as a proxy that delays packets:

Expected Result:
Only one checkout successfully completes using the voucher.

Actual Result:
Both checkouts successfully complete using the voucher.
