I am actually unsure of the bug, all I know is that market sales aren't proceeding as normal, and that there isn't enough information provided to debug it. I believe market bids are not working, and assets auctions will be finalised once the code is fixed (next sync).
Assets purchased on the market could be anywhere, and carried by other people. I'd recommend not buying items (equipment) from the NPC market. Ships and Vehicles purchased might be docked, or under shields, so there is no guarantee you'll be able to access any purchases.
