Catch 22 with new database having a full log

We need some help. One of our new non-production MaxDB databases has run into the situation where its log filled up before an initial backup was taken. Since no backup has been taken, we cannot activate autolog to resolve the full log situation. When we try to take a backup, we receive the following two errors:

-24755,ERR_SESSIONLIMIT: No session of type 'User' available

-24994,ERR_RTE: Runtime environment error 2,task limit

We presume this is because the database is not accepting any more activity due to the full log. How can we get a backup complete so we can then activate auto logging? If we can't get a backup at this point, how can we get the the autolog activated, or even set the log overwrite on temporarily to get us unstuck and allow the backup?

Any suggestions would be extremely welcome.
