Is it possible the numbering has rolled over?

Subject: Re: Journal receivers
I presented insufficient information. I thoughht the question was so common that details would have been tedious.
Attach date: 07/12/06
Size (K): 286884
No detach or save date.
Manage receivers: *SYSTEM
Delete receivers: *YES
What drew my attention was that the journal receiver was 0001.
Something is odd. Is there a system value that is potentially wrong?

I recall what the associated journal is for; the *DBXREF queue

[if there is any] more specific documentation\information would be easiest.
Is there a process that is supposed to be run to detach these
receivers, or is that just done manually?
Each journal environment for which those [system] receivers are
established, should include the Manage Receivers (MNGRCV) setting of
*SYSTEM and the Delete Receivers (DLTRCV) setting of *YES; refer to
the Work With Journal Attributes for the *JRN associated with each of
the noted\named Journal Receiver (*JRNRCV) objects. Thus there should
be only one journal receiver object that is active\attached per journal object.
The maximum size of the journal receiver before deletion will be
determined by the Receiver Size Options of the journal and the
Threshold attribute of the journal receiver; see the Display Journal
Receiver Attributes (DSPJRNA) for the threshold and the associated Journal object.
Note that the QRECOVERY library is omitted from the Backup phase of
B&R [thus effectively, the origin for the system library name prefix
paired with the word "RECOVERY"].
With the default journal environment, the request to Change Journal
(CHGJRN) to request attaching a new generated-name or an explicitly
named journal receiver will enable reducing the current storage for
a[n at least partially] full receiver to the storage of an empty
receiver. For example, the request to CHGJRN QSYS2/QSQJRN JRNRCV(*GEN)
would effect a new empty receiver with the next receiver name and the
previously attached receiver would be detached and deleted. Of
course, over time, the receiver will again fill-up approaching the
maximum allowed size before system-managed change to a new receiver.
Although the journaling environments could be customized [from the
defaults], normally that would only be done to enable problem
investigation or to circumvent a problem with any negative effects per the defaults.
