[jboss-user] [JBoss Messaging] - journal files not getting cleaned up and server startup fail

I am using JBM 2.0.0.BETA1 stand alone server. 
I have added 1 million messages in a queue with following page settings in jbm-configuration.xml


When I try to consume these messages it is observed that sometimes (especially when using Session.CLIENT_ACKNOWLEDGE), the journal folder size grows to 2 to 3GBs and stays there even after client has consumed all the messages. When I checked the Paging/ folder, it is empty (as expected). It seems the Journal garbage collector is not correctly cleaning up the files from journal/ folder. 
Now, the issue is that, when I try to restart the server, it fails and throws OutOfMemroyException. I am able to successfully restart the server after manually deleting all journal files. 
Now, I am not sure why server is loading the journal files on start up when all the messages are already consumed. Any help on this issue is greatly appreciated.
