after generating keys failed (see bug#12), another ivocation of server-start
gives the following traceback. Maybe a missing ServerDesc file should be
handled more gracefully, or different.

Hm. This is probably because generating keys last time failed in between making
a key directory and writing the server descriptor. I think I have a fix in CVS now.
