THe issue was that one of the ring snapshot files had size 0

user at node1:~$ ls -la /var/lib/riak/ring/
total 32
drwxr-xr-x 2 riak riak   138 Jan 17 10:27 .
drwxr-xr-x 7 riak riak   129 Jan 17 13:22 ..
-rw-rw-r-- 1 riak riak 12584 Jan 15 17:19
riak_core_ring.default.20130115171955
-rw-rw-r-- 1 riak riak 12584 Jan 17 10:27
riak_core_ring.default.20130117102756
-rw-rw-r-- 1 riak riak     0 Jan 17 10:27
riak_core_ring.default.20130117102757

After deleting it riak process started correctly.
I guess riak process should check if ring file is corrupted or 0 bytes
long, delete/rename it automatically
and use previous version?

Regards
Daniel
