[Opendnssec-user] Notify debugging

We use adapters in addns.xml  to receive the unsigned zones via zone 
transfers. This worked well. An update of the zone on the source server was 
received and processed by opendnssec in a few seconds.
Recently I installed ods 1.4.5. I now have the impression that a notify from 
the source system is not received by opendnssec any more. In the logs of the 
source system, I see that a notify is sent, but opendnssec does not read the 
new zone with a zone transfer. I have two questions:

1) In the log files notify messages are not mentioned at all. The logging 
verbosity in config.xml is set to 3. Is there a verbosity that will show 
logging of incoming notify messages for further diagnostics?

2) Is there a way to force opendnssec to read the new zone with a zone 

BTW, in the log files I see for many zones messages like :
May 15 09:58:09 dns ods-signerd: [axfr] axfr fallback zone erdg.usor.nl
May 15 09:58:09 dns ods-signerd: [axfr] zone erdg.usor.nl journal not found 
for serial 2014051501
May 15 09:58:09 dns ods-signerd: [axfr] axfr fallback zone erdg.usor.nl
In an attempt to force a zone transfer, I restarted both the enforcer and 
the signer daemons. For some zones I see in the log file messages like:
May 15 12:11:48 dns ods-signerd: [backup] bad ixfr journal: trailing RRs 
after final SOA
May 15 12:11:51 dns ods-signerd: [zone] corrupted journal file zone 
erdg.usor.nl, skipping (General error)

Is this normal? If not, should I do something to fix it, or is it fixed 
(Note, this i not the zone that has a problem with the notify, but I mention 
it, because it could indicate a more general problem.)
