Verify that ALL the "httpd" processes are gone, as shutting down apache
normally when something wedges the repository rarely ever results in all
apache processes exiting, then manually removed the leaked semaphores
with "ipcs" and "ipcrm -s". Any semaphores under the user/group
"apache" that are still alive after apache exited need to be removed, if
not, then eventually your machine will run out of semaphores and need a

Before running recover, goto the repository/db directory and run "lsof
*". If you see anything accessing the files kill it. Then run
recover. While recover is running you can use "lsof *" to watch its
progress (in a catastrophic recovery, it will walk through the log files
a few at a time).
