  I also had this problem with the venus having cache overflow.
  I guessed that the coda client transferred a file to the server, the venus
  would cache the file in the /usr/coda/venus.cache first.
  When it completed this action, the client would talk to the server and 
  transfer the file. Asking a question for codings, is it what I guessed true?

  Thus you could make the size of /usr/coda/venus.cache be greater than the 
  files. For me, I use 1G for the venus' cache.
