Someone suggested to me that the `su` invocation in the `/etc/init.d/couchdb`
script should properly initialise the `couchdb` user's environment.

Are you running CouchDB from the init script as the superuser?

If so, this might be the problem.

Who originally suggested this may be a problem? Please speak up.

If you are not invoking CouchDB in this method, I am quite confused. The
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable should not be ignored.

If you move it back and export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/js/lib does it work?

Well, we need to get to the bottom of the problem first. :)
