Stale PID: Unable to start bitmask: Another twistd server is running
A friend (ubuntu 17.10, staging debs 0.10.3-rc1) cannot start bitmask because it complains about another twistd server should be running, which is not:
$ ps aux |grep bitm ... 6696 0.0 0.0 15920 1072 pts/0 R+ 22:15 0:00 grep bitm $ bitmask [+] launching bitmaskd... Another twistd server is running, PID 1965 This could either be a previously started instance of your application or a different application entirely. To start a new one, either run it in some other directory, or use the --pidfile and --logfile parameters to avoid clashes. ERROR: No authentication token found!
Besides a proper fix, what would be the easy workaround for users experiencing this ?
