Re: FileChannel - WARN on restart
Yeah that should be info. Just means we'll be reading a little more data than needed but still waiting to process data until the correct write order id.  

Long term I'd like see a new rev of the file format which includes prefixed checksums and sync records for random reads (for skipping to the correct location based in write order id) included.
