[chandler-users] "Another Chandler is already..." Help!

I may have just had the same problem occur...in any event, I also got 
the dialog about Another Chandler is already running off the same data 
repository.

In case it hasn't already been noted, wanted to mention that after this 
dialog popped, the Chandler splash screen had the message, "Auto-restore 
from backup.chex...10%". Seems like a potential clue to me.

Using the start-up options was not working for me, so I went to the 
command line, again, without luck. Here is what showed up in the monitor.

C:\chandlerr-rc1>release\runpython -O chandler.py --stderr --nocatch 
--recover
CHANDLERHOME is "C:\chandlerr-rc1\"
CHANDLERBIN is "C:\chandlerr-rc1\"
