No, it's not. But I must admit having *sometimes* similar quirks -- I *always*
clock time spent during work days, always. And I restart Emacs quite often
(these weeks, even much more, as I get crashes with Emacs, but that's another

Please send your "ECM" (French for "Minimal Complete Example"):

- your 5-lines init file
- a minimal file with clocking information

and your recipe (steps) to reproduce the above problem in a predictable

As well, you could give information about your org-version...

Finally, you could be interested (or not) by adding this chunk of code to your
.emacs file in order to be prompted whether you want to clock out or not when
quitting Emacs:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  ;; ask the user if they wish to clock out before killing Emacs
  (defun my/org-clock-query-out ()
    "Ask the user before clocking out.
  This is a useful function for adding to `kill-emacs-query-functions'."
    (if (and
             (featurep 'org-clock)
             (funcall 'org-clocking-p)
             (y-or-n-p "You are currently clocking time, clock out? "))
      t)) ;; only fails on keyboard quit or error

  ;; timeclock.el puts this on the wrong hook!
  (add-hook 'kill-emacs-query-functions 'my/org-clock-query-out)
