[Buildbot-devel] buildbot won't start after running out of disk space

The machine I use as a buildbot master ran out of disk space in the file system buildbot's configuration directory is on.  Disk space has been cleaned up, but I'm no longer able to start buildbot on the master.  The messages I get on stdout when running "buildbot --verbose start <configdir>" are below.  twistd.pid is empty, and nothing is getting written to twistd.log.

What can I do to get some more informative debugging output to find out where it's getting stuck?  Any suggestions about what might be going wrong and how to recover from it?  I suppose I could just delete the entire configuration directory (saving only the master.cfg) and start over, but I'd like to preserve the build history.
