The behavior I experience got worse: ejabberd won't come up at all 
anymore. When I start it, I see the process running for a little while, 
but then it just crashes as described above. I wonder what's messed up 
so that the behavior got worse. I also tried to restart the whole server 
and shut down the erlang environment but nothing helps. Any idea would 
be highly appreciated.
