[erlang-questions] Help! rb won't start, and won't stop

Dear All

This is my own fault.

I recently restarted my remote app, connected to the node in a shell, 
started rb and called rb:show(), expecting a list of a hundred or so 
reports since starting the app.  I realised too late that rb would show 
me all the logs in the ten rotating log files.

I can't remember what I did next.  It included killing the job and 
quitting the shell.

When I came back, rb wouldn't start:

     1> {ok,Pid} = rb:start().
     ** exception error: no match of right hand side value 
{error,already_present}

But it wouldn't stop either:

     2> rb:stop().
     ** exception exit: {noproc,{gen_server,call,[rb_server,stop,infinity]}}
          in function  gen_server:call/3
          in call from rb:stop/0

It wouldn't show me the reports:

     > rb:show(1).
     ** exception exit: {noproc,{gen_server,call,
 
[rb_server,{show_number,1},infinity]}}
          in function  gen_server:call/3

But it wasn't entirely inert:

     > rb:h().

     ===========================
     rb:start() ...

Can anybody help me get rb working again?  I promise to be more careful 
next time.

With thanks and best wishes

Ivan
