Sorry to hear that you are having this problem.

Any hints who may be the culprit and/or how to debug the issue?

It might be useful to compare the logs between an successful and unsuccessful startup attempt. The differences might be a useful clue.

I'm guessing that perhaps this was from an unsuccessful previous run? In which case I would be interested to see the whole log.
