    Description

      this is a duplicate of AMQ-3677 which was marked resolved. however i am still noticing this issue using the 5.6 snapshot release from apr 11, 2012. in this case activemq server was shutdown by terminating the java process. when the server is started again, following exception is logged every 30 seconds:

      here is the server configuration:

      <beans
          xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
          xmlns:amq="http://activemq.apache.org/schema/core"

        <!-- Allows us to use system properties as variables in this configuration file -->
        <bean class="org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer"/>
        
        <!-- Configure the ActiveMQ broker -->
        <broker
            xmlns="http://activemq.apache.org/schema/core"
            brokerName="ZyrionMessageBus" 
            useJmx="false"
            dataDirectory="${activemq.base}/../../utils/spool/jms"
            deleteAllMessagesOnStartup="false"
            advisorySupport="false"
            offlineDurableSubscriberTimeout="7200000"
            offlineDurableSubscriberTaskSchedule="1800000">
      
          [...]
      
          <!-- Configure message persistence for the broker -->
          <persistenceAdapter>
            <kahaDB directory="${activemq.base}/../../utils/spool/jms/kahadb" ignoreMissingJournalfiles="true" checkForCorruptJournalFiles="true" checksumJournalFiles="true"/>
          </persistenceAdapter>
      

      i can provide a copy of the kahadb directory if necessary to duplicate the issue. let me know if you require any additional information. thanks
