I am sorry, yesterday evening I must have been a bit tired after a long day with a lot of
problems and error messages, so that I did not realize that yes, the frontend was finally
starting well again but by recovering the odb file from an old one, it was stuck in the
transition "stopping run" and this caused the continuous reloading of the status page.
A "obdedit -C stop" solved the problem.
Sorry for this!
