MapDB restoreOnStartup not beating rules in 2.1 release

I recently updated to the 2.1 release version from an earlier 2.0 snapshot. Upon doing so, I’m finding now that when I restart, the item restores are not happening before the rules get processed even though I’m using the restoreOnStartup under strategies. Is there a way to figure out why this is happening? Or are others seeing the same behavior? This is causing all sorts of chaos anytime I need to restart the OH service, which is still somewhat often since I’m running through some testing with a particular binding currently.

Any help is appreciated.

not seeing this with MapDB and my (quite complex) rules - using the ubuntu installation package
