%N Last time n appears in the first differences of n*log(n): A217865.
%C Conjecture: the last time n appears is always before the first time n+2 appears.
%C For example, examine: 1, 2, 2, 3, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 3, 3, 4, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 3, 4, 4, 5, 4, 4, 4 (A217865).
%C We can see that the last 2 is before the first 4, the last 3 is before the first 5, etc.
%e 2 lasts appears in A217865 at position 5 so a(2)=5.
