Does the file /vice/srv.conf exists, does it list the rvm log and data
files, and have those file been successfully created by vice-setup-rvm.
What are the parameters you gave when running vice-setup-rvm?

Sometimes it does, some off-by-one error in rvm was fixed recently
(after 5.3.1) which occasionally hit. Ofcourse, depending on chosen rvm
memory size, time of the year and the phase of the moon. In short, it
was a problem that apparantly existed since day 1, but had never been
really obvious (failed rvminit once in a while) or reproducable enough
for anyone to notice.

Maybe 22M or 130M works.
