UPDATE: Thanks for suggestion. However, I finally resolved problem by removing "/var/lib/shorewall/.start" (after making backup copy) then restarting Shorewall.
____________________________________________
For a few years I have been using Shorewall (currently 4.4.15.1) along with iptables to set up a firewall as well as masquerading. It is now refusing to start, giving the following error message: "ERROR: /var/lib/shorewall/.start exists and is not a compiled script." The only recent change I've made is an upgrade of the kernel to gentoo-sources 2.6.38-r7, but I made no configuration changes to the networking sections. Startup is enabled in shorewall.config. A Web search for this error hasn't turned up anything useful. I'd appreciate any information as to what might cause the start script not to compile (Bash seems to be OK)and how to approach this problem. Thanks in advance.

Mostly the reason why Shorewall hangs on startup ;)
