It can cause all weird types of data loss.
Are you sure you did not run out of space early while debugging venus?

My way of reinitializing venus:
(not that I need it often, usually I do not observe crashes, but neither
start disconnected often)

rm -rf ..../ (the directory where my DATA,LOG,log,spool,venus.cache live,
              hope you have them in one place, too)
venus-setup "$DEFAULTREALM" "$dim" (creates all the necessary dirs...)

So you get rid of all old temporary objects.

Hope it helps,
