Yes it is Coda and it is bad: this is one of the remaining kernel bugs
that we are trying to track down.  These alias messages lead to wild
pointers, since dentry's continue to exist, but the inodes they point to
are being freed. 

If anyone can easily produce alias messages, I'd love to know how to nail
the bug!
