$ ejabberdctl default at suzele.bluehands.de stop
Successfully stopped ejabberd on node ....

I suppose so.

No and this does not make me happy, either. But it happened and since
computers are (still) deterministic there is away to produce the
behaviour. We can not do more than to keep it in mind.

Is there a command (maybe internal) to flush the DB?

You might assume that I accidently deleted accounts. But I am not
erlang-wizard enough to access the DB. I can not even see them. How
can I check the DB independent of ejabberd?
