I've not had chance to write a test case yet (bad James!) but I've
just committed a fix for this.

So the boolean property "JMSXGroupFirstForConsumer" will be set on the
first message which is sent to a consumer for a particular message

If the JMS connection is using failover: and a temporary network error
occurs, a new consumer instance will be created under the covers of
the JMS client leading to the possibility of another message with this
header being set for the same message group.

So you can do code like...

String groupId = message.getStringProperty("JMSXGroupId");
if (message.getBooleanProperty("JMSXGroupFirstForConsumer")) {
   // flush cache for groupId
