That sounds like a bug, though I'm not able to reproduce it locally. Is this a restarted RAM node by any chance? The reset command does query mnesia for the cluster status and if the mnesia table's aren't present it does try to read from this 'cluster status file' - even if you're not clustered. But I can't see how that would happen unless the rabbit mnesia tables were missing.
