This question already has an answer here:

Consider this simple code

Manipulate[n, {{n, 3}, 1, 5, 1}]

It will produce

enter image description here

If we click on Show-Animation-Controls button next to the slider, suddenly the value changes to 1.

enter image description here

I think this is not an expected behavior of a slider with initial value on a manipulate. Or, it is? I use 10.1 on Windows 7.

I was pinging Vitaliy Kaurov about this issue some time ago. Lucky for us, our site seems to have quite some members from the WRI development team. Some time later I got a response from Ilian Gachevski saying

@halirutan fixed in the development version (chatlog)

This means we just have to wait for the next release.
