TransactionManager.StartTransation() causes null object error?

I have an event handler connected to the Database.ObjectAppended to watch when a particular object type has been appended to the database. Within the event handler, it seems that the database is in such as state that I can't get a transaction to query the database with; it causes a null object exception when I call StartTransaction() on the database's TransactionManager. Any ideas why?

// ObjectEventHandler event handler
private static void Database_ObjectAppended(object sender, ObjectEventArgs e)
{
Database database = sender as Database;
PropertySet propertySet = e.DBObject as PropertySet;
if (propertySet != null && database != null)
{
ObjectId sheetnoteSetDefId = ObjectId.Null;
// *** Error happens on next line ***
using (Transaction trans = database.TransactionManager.StartTransaction())
{
using (DictionaryPropertySetDefinitions propertySetDefIds = new DictionaryPropertySetDefinitions(database))
{
foreach (ObjectId propertySetDefId in propertySetDefIds.Records)
{
PropertySetDefinition propertySetDef = (PropertySetDefinition)trans.GetObject(propertySetDefId, O
