This is a known error which has been fixed in 1.5.2 (hopefully).

What were you doing when the server crashed ?

Otherwise, I guess that you can't anymore start the server again. You 
will have to destroy the schema partition file, restart the server, and 
reinject the new schema.

We have added what we called a changeLog which save every modification 
to the server, in order to get it repaired when it crashed (for any 
reason, like a power failure). It's not yet totally functionnal, so in 
the meantime, I suggest that you export your data as a LDIF file to get 
a backup.

Sorry for the inconvenience, the server is still under heavy work to 
make it more stable and reliable, but it's a long term work.
