The wtxid and txid are the same if and only if the transaction does not contain any segwit inputs. The wtxid is the hash of the entire transaction including all segwit data (i.e. the marker and flag bytes and the witness fields themselves).

A pruned node will always catch up, whats the hassle? The issue stems from having Bitcoin Core opened but the wallet in question is not loaded in Bitcoin Core (because you closed it).
