This may pertain, if not, forgive me. There was an abrupt exit from Moz
on my wife's machine (RH 9) -- the 2-yr-old may have cycled the power, I
don't remember. After a prayer of thanks for journaling file systems, we
found the same behavior on her Moz.
I get vague here ... I'm older, you know. IIRC Moz claimed that one of
its lib files was opened already. I ran lsof (man lsof for more) to find
