I have noticed an issue where if a future maps/flatmaps after actor shutdown, a NullPointerException is thrown. I've narrowed it down to the import context.dispatcher, which I technically understand since that is closing over actor state. If I change that to implicit val ec = context.dispatcher, everything works fine.
I'd like to understand what is the best practice in this case, since the documentation for context.dispatcher indicates that it is threadsafe and looking at the actor trait, context is a val. Most documentation seems to indicate that import context.dispatcher is preferred.
