This was a bug fixed on trunk.
to recover from it, you could export the journal data using the export tool.
Then look for sequences out of order on the file. You can invert the files on the TXT file.
Now import the TXT file into a brand new journal. You should have it cleared.
Thanks is it possible to get the jira link for the fix?
Thats quiet a long discussion i was thinking of patching the fixes over 2.1.2 release but if 2.2 is coming out anytime soon i can wait. I tired to search for the release dates but could get it so again appriciate it if you could tell me when is the expected release date for 2.2.
