That is very implausible.  Shovel is largely stateless and even an application
restart is enough to "unstuck" it.  The mnesia/msgstore data doesn't have
anything to do with the issue you experienced.

Restarting the shovel application, as mentioned:

  rabbitmqctl eval 'application:stop(rabbitmq_shovel), application:start(rabbitmq_shovel).'

If all goes well, a few days.
