For the benefit of the list, I worked with Dale on this off-line, and it 
turned out to be an "orcallator.cfg.lock/" directory lingering around 
from a reboot or similar.  There were no messages because without 
-logfile, orca logs to /dev/null by default. 

Lesson learned: always use a -logfile parameter to orca.
