Sorry, i forgot to give exact version information:
This was coda 5.2.7 on a i686 debian potato system with glibc 2.1.

After my evaluation, i really find coda full of good ideas and it has
astonishing features, e.g. resolution. OTOH i have lost far to many
volumes during my testing :-(. 

Today i finally managed to create a replicated volume. I was really happy 
and was soon after disappointed:
While doing large "tar zxvf" venus stopped responding.

 Alles Gute / best wishes
