CRM Transaction Record Created when attempts to use Paypal Secure Checkout is Interrupted or Incomplete

When attempting to process a transaction via Paypal Secure Checkout and that process is interrupted or otherwise incomplete, a transaction record is still created in CRM as if the payment was completed.
Blackbaud Internet Solutions does not support use of the Paypal Secure Checkout Page.  Any issues that occur as an attempt to utilize this component are custom and must be investigated and addressed by whomever is developing the custom functionality.
