I assure you, we start and stop rabbit all the time in this way, and
don't see this problem. No one else has reported this problem when the
mnesia database is empty (or at least not very big).

Sigh, just looking at your two traces, your IP address has change - and
you appear to be basing your hostname on your IP address. This is a known
problem, especially with Macs.

In message 4B4B4160.1010704 at lshift.net, Tony said:
"Yes, it is. It's because of the way macs change their hostname. This
interacts badly with the way epmd looks up its own address. Some relief
might be found by following the ideas from this thread:

In short, mnesia will write the full nodename to disk when it creates the
schema. If your nodename changes then it will fail to restart.
