I am running bitcoin testnet daemon for development, but lately I have trouble with starting the daemon. Blockchain is downloaded and it seems that everything runs fine till
init message: Verifying blocks...
Verifying last 288 blocks at level 3
then it seems stuck or takes hours before doing anything. Interesting is that restarting the daemon helped me couple times and daemon started in several minutes as usual. In this time i cant obviously use RPC commands. I dont have trouble starting mainnet daemon. Anybody has any idea what might cause and how to fix this overly long verification?
