Stop the instance and start it on the foreground like this:
bin/instance fg

That may stop with an informative error instead of continuing like
'bin/instance start' tries.

At least this error looks like a variant of the error in this thread:

Products.FAQulator does not exist (spelling does not matter).  It is
still an old-style product.  So in your buildout.cfg you will have to
use the productdistros (plone.recipe.distros) or productcheckouts
(infrae.subversion) part.

I have this in a Plone 3.0.6 buildout for a client, which uses a
specific revision of the trunk (probably because that happened to be
the most recent change when the site went live):

recipe = infrae.subversion
urls =
    http://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/FAQulator/trunk@58927 FAQulator
