Trying to restart innd after power outage but get "innd dead but subsys locked"

Here is an excerpt from a  shell session

[root]# /etc/init.d/innd start
Starting INND system:                                      [  OK  ]
[root]# /etc/init.d/innd status
innd dead but subsys locked

I have searched dejanews and the inn-workers archives for the solution but
to no avail.

I began to think that perhaps there was a stuck lockfile or .pid file but
alas, no such luck.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

p.s. My setup is Redhat 7.1 with inn-2.3.1-2
