Spark intial message not visible to recipient

in both 2.5.8 and 2.6.0 Beta 2, The first received message of the day, opens on new chat session form the sender, but does not show the message sent. the message does show in the monitoring logs on the Openfire server. Also, the first message sent from some users (even if other conversations have occured) will do the same thing. I am also able to repeat this behavior by starting a chat session with myself withing the same local spark instance.

I do not see anything in the spark or server logs that when this problem occurs. As far as I know, I am the only one experiancing this issue. Can anybody help with this?

Do you have chat history enabled in spark? If you do scroll down when you get your first message. If no then this is a unique issue to you. You could try deleteing your spark preferences folder from your computer. Depending on your OS the location of this varies. The settings folder is located in the root of your home folder in windows and mac OS X.
