Hi there (again)

Just forget about my mail (if you're not having the same problem), I've
found the problem :
In order to stop and start the client easily, I've created some scripts
that create / delete a "stoprc5.now" file. It seems that when that file
exists, the client doesn't do anything at all (not even a -config or a
-help, which started my worrying in the first place). "Simply" removing
that file before starting the client will solve the problem.

Sorry for wasting your time
