Check function problems between two independent Workflows

A triggering event is used to start 2 Workflows. Workflow A has a check function module attached to it. Workflow B does not have any check function. When the event fails to meet the conditions in Workflow A, its check function module is terminated with an exception. Most of the times Workflow B is started even though the check for Workflow A failed. But sometimes I notice that the system fails to start Workflow B, due to a failure in check function for workflow A. Why does this happen? Are they not totally independent? What am I doing wrong?

Without seeing your specific configuration, I would say that the two Workflows are completely independent and one should not affect the other. From what you are telling me, I would guess that Workflow B is failing for other reasons.
