I think you can ignore this message, it also appear in my kernel
message.  I guess it just indicates that Venus was trying to make 
a downcall too early (before /coda was mounted ?).

Venus take some time to start up, so wait for a while and see
what is shown by "ls /coda" ?

Also, Coda has two logs which you can monitor the progress and
have a better idea of what is happening.  I always use

  tail -f /usr/coda/etc/console


  tail -f /usr/coda/venus.cache/venus.log

What do they show ?
