I believe the Java Broker has the more expected (correct) behaviour.

I guess a theoretically interesting question is: what should occur if
the message order were reversed, i.e. you send a message with TTL
3600s, followed by a message with the same key and TTL 5s.  One could
plausibly argue that after 5s the value for the given key should
revert to the "original" value.  The Java Broker would not exhibit
this behaviour, but would instead have no value for the given key
after the second version of the message had expired.
