Don't keep looping when couchjs fails to start
----------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-619
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-619
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
         Environment: couchdb trunk
ubuntu karmic x64
            Reporter: Brian Candler
            Priority: Minor


Ubuntu just sent out a new version of xulrunner (1.9.1.6 -> 1.9.1.7)

As a result, couchjs no longer worked, as it was linked against 1.9.1.6 in a specific directory,
and that directory had been removed.

However it took me a bit to work out what was going on. When I ran the test suite, it just
got stuck at "> Basic > Running...".  A curl http://127.0.0.1:5984/ was fine, but any
attempt to make a query just hung. Eventually I found that loads of these were being logged:

[Sat, 09 Jan 2010 12:07:43 GMT] [error] [<0.129.0>] OS Process Error <0.1918.0>
:: {os_process_error,{exit_status,127}}
[Sat, 09 Jan 2010 12:07:43 GMT] [error] [<0.129.0>] OS Process Error <0.1921.0>
:: {os_process_error,{exit_status,127}}
[Sat, 09 Jan 2010 12:07:43 GMT] [error] [<0.129.0>] OS Process Error <0.1924.0>
:: {os_process_error,{exit_status,127}}
[Sat, 09 Jan 2010 12:07:43 GMT] [error] [<0.129.0>] OS Process Error <0.1927.0>
:: {os_process_error,{exit_status,127}}
...

(over 3MB by the time I'd realised).

I wonder if couchdb could handle this a bit more gracefully? For example, if couchjs starts
and dies before even a single request has been sent to it, then disable it for a few minutes
and/or log a more specific error message?

Returning an error to the view client would be good too, rather than hanging waiting for a
view update which can never complete. Just a thought.
