You might know this - but just in case and for others reading: if the
datastore fails to come up for any reason, the datastore storage dir
(~/.sugar/default/datastore) gets moved aside and a new one is
created. If you "lost" your journal this way, the files are in
~/.sugar/default/datastore.XXX .

It will be interesting to know why ds failed to come up and file it as
a bug if relevant. Do the logs in .sugar/default/logs say anything
