Moving to another OS is one of my options yes.
The copy-paste was from my history so the directory certainly looks a bit odd.
Again, it doesn't start at reboot.
What I don't like with starting over from scratch is that multiple others have the same issue, and no one of them is helped by that solution.
I also had a working setup until 1st apt-get upgrade of the year.
So the solution to start from scratch every time the setup stops working is less appealling as it requires a lot of reconfiguration. In my case setting up tellstick all over again and possibly also ther stuff.
Since that breaking upgrade I've done purge and taken down the new distro.
And that started fine until I added bindings for tellstick aand zwave.
(I did not reboot at every change. Granted that might have given better fault analysis)
The situation is serious from an OH perspective as there is no possibility to address faults if it chrasches,
as all configuration is done in Paper UI as far as I know.
