Unmount /coda, then try again.  It is not possible to reattach to an
already mounted coda fs, and although it is automatically mounted when
venus starts, it is not unmounted when venus exits.

I believe that the reason for this is that it is impossible to unmount 
while some program still has something in the filesystem opened. So 
when the unmount fails, it is likely that there some shell that has its
current working directory in /coda.
