Apologies.  I *suspected* it was initially due to running into the disk limit,
but I'm not 100% sure.  The sensors are set to reboot daily (not my design
choice), so whatever is happening with shovel takes less than 24 hours and
seems to survive a reboot but not a power cycle.

It is definitely repeatable such that I've disabled shovel on the test sensors
that I can get into.  I've got one that's currently stuck and sending non-rabbit
heartbeats that I'd be happy to investigate when I can gain access (unfortunately
I do not have physical access to any of them).
