Can you update to trunk and re-run recovery with log level set to
DEBUG?  It will log the file it is in like this:

DEBUG - Replaying
/var/lib/cassandra/commitlog/CommitLog-1251137387800.log starting at

then before it errors out the last entry like

DEBUG - Reading mutation at 666

still couldn't restart. I figured all the writes would have committed by then.

Must be a different bug, then.  Thanks for finding it for us! :)
