Delete canceled empty transfer

In Odoo 9.0c, from a PO I clicked "Receive Products" but then at the next screen clicked "Cancel" instead of "Discard."  NO products were received (received quantities remained at zero).  The PO still allows us to click "Receive Products" but then it takes us to the list of transfers.  That list contains only the cancelled transfer (of zero products).  But now Odoo doesn't seem to expect any of those products to arrive.  We tried to cancel the null/empty/zero transfer, but it won't let us (which seems strange).  We essentially want to undo or reverse the cancel of the transfer...if possible.

We deleted all of the "Cancelled" stock moves which resulted in the transfer (WH/IN/#####) status changing from "Cancelled" to "Draft" but now it contains no line items and it still won't let us delete it. Object with reference: Packing Operation - stock.pack.operation Where can we find this packing operation (and why is there one in the first place?!?) so that we can delete/remove the reference? This feels a lot like a "bug" or at the very lease "adverse features."

Added each line item back to WH/IN/##### then did some receiving. Everything looked fine until we realized the PO didn't show any quantities received. So we clicked the Reverse button to try to undo the receiving and now it looks like we still "own" them but they're stored at the partner/vendor. ~sigh~ There seems to be a recurring theme in Odoo that there is no "undo" in a lot of places where there should be one (where there's no legal/GAAP/ISO reason to prevent it). Not only is there no "undo" but no reasonably clear path to "do the opposite" or otherwise create new activities that cleanly negate the old ones. I don't mind combing through source and looking through database tables, but at v9.0 I'd rather it wasn't a daily timesink. :)
