That could be a related problem.  Or it might be a different bug. :)
Is the commitlog small enough that you can gzip it and attach to JIRA
(10 MB limit)?

the last entry in the commitlog being incomplete." Does the last entry in the commit log being
incomplete mean that the last update or set of updates are not fully committed to the log?
And therefore they are lost? I thought since I had set "<CommitLogSync>true</CommitLogSync>"
that all updates would be fully flushed before returning to the caller.

Right, but you can still have an incomplete write in progress if you
shut down while writes are still happening.
