Just to point at the code that should handle the unexpected shutdown:

http://dev.laptop.org/git?p=projects/datastore;a=blob;f=bin/datastore-service;h=aba711221eded35ad919196ea0942072d96d966c;hb=HEAD#l49

We should make sure that the shutdown is handled gracefully and
there's no index corruption nor a stale locking file.
