This gets wierder.. I rebuilt coda-5.2.7 (with krb5 support) with my
patches for updaclnt/updasrv endian problems on my x86 box and on my PPC
box. Out of curiousity, I shut down down both servers and restarted only
the one on the PPC box, removing the entry on the x86 box.

To my surpise, venus started happily. When I add the x86 machine to the
servers file, and start the server, all of a sudden I get this (from
withing gdb):

01:09:10        0 hdb entries on free-list
01:09:10 Initial LRDB allocation
01:09:10 Getting Root Volume information...
01:09:10 Venus starting...

Program terminated with signal SIGKILL, Killed.
The program no longer exists.  

Any ideas? (If this is an endian issue, it's manifesting itself in really
*weird* ways)
