In your configuration file, you have a logdir setting.  You might want
to look at the log file there (write.log, I believe).

Basically, if we say that {monotone} and {local} are the values of the
settings with corresponding names, it does this:

        {monotone} server --bind={randomport} {local}

Well, an invalid command of some sort WOULD result in a failed fork,
so that's definitely a plausible explanation.  Check the log in
