Comment (by gk):

 Hm, we could use more log output I guess. We fail somewhere here
             LOG.info("Waiting for control port");
             boolean isCreated = controlPortFile.exists() ||
             WriteObserver controlPortFileObserver =
             if (!isCreated || (controlPortFile.length() == 0 &&
 !controlPortFileObserver.poll(config.getFileCreationTimeout(), SECONDS)))
                 LOG.warn("Control port file not created");
