>From the user's point of view, it just sits there - it doesn't return to the
shell (with -b it returns to the shell of course). However ps does show the
beam. The strace of the process shows it waiting, but I couldn't glean
anything useful from that.

I tried advancing to the next checkout:

commit d8f6a91ff5eec5232a7adc4fb2a198c08840b0ca

    use a POSIX-compatible invocation of basename
    git-svn-id: 13f79535-47bb-0310-9956-ffa450edef68

It makes no difference:
- /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb start says [OK]
- processes are started, but nothing listens on 5984
- /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb stop says [OK] but does nothing
  (processes still running)
