The usual cause of this is someone hand editing the master
file and not removing the journal.

Well the record was there when named first deleted it.

I wouldn't expect it to. The journal contains a list of
changes that were applied to the zone. In theory all these
changes should be reapplyable.

Tar them up and send a url to bind-bugs at isc.org.
