I have come across a problem where PersistentActors are not restored with the correct lastSequenceNr from snapshots, when the JVM is restarted with a completely removed journal. I think to have found the culprit and provided a short fix in the following PR (including more details, a test case and our reason for wiping a journal). I have seen this problem occur in 2.5.23 & 2.5.24 (most probably it is also in earlier versions).
Shall I also open a ticket for this PR?
Thank you all very much and have a great day,
