[Glass] pgsvrmain hanged with CPU usage and logins disabled...

As always, Dale nail it...thanks Dale!

So... the thing is that this stone seems to have been shutdown anomaly. If
I carefully analyzed the log, I saw that it was trying to recover from
tanlogs. At the same time, I was trying to start my gems. That ended up
with the  "GemStone logins are currently disabled" message. I still don't
know why pgsvrmain was hanged with 30% CPU...but ok, I understood enough.

So..the real problem is that I was  NOT doing a waitstone (I wasen't aware
of it). So since the stone didn't start because of the anormal shutdown and
the tranlogs stuff, I was trying to start gems at the same time and
well....I caused that scenario. To solve this:

1) I added a waitstone to my seaside gems startup:

$GEMSTONE/bin/waitstone $GEMSTONE_NAME 10

2) I had to start the stone with -R and -N and even with that it refused to
do it. The log told me to remove X tranlog and that's what I did. After
that, the stone could start correctly and gems too.

I learned 2 things today. Great.

Thank you guys.
