Any odd messages in the hobbitlaunch.log file ? This gets the error
messages from the very early startup-phase of hobbitd.

This error is really one of those "it-cannot-happen" errors.
Meaning that either the error-message is bogus, or something
very weird is going on. Just in case, did you recompile Hobbit
after the upgrade, to make sure the run-time libraries etc. are
in sync with your new system ?
