When venus is killed right after printing 'Venus starting', it must be
the child that is the culprit. And as the server is trying to set up
a callback connection, the client is able to talk to the server.

Nothing logged in /usr/coda/etc/console?

Try to start venus as `venus -d 10', maybe a higher debug level will
reveal something here. ps. normally when venus crashed/dies it is put
into an endless loop, as that is the best way to debug rvm related
problems. It also means that venus will keep certain sockets/resources
allocated which will cause a second venus to fail during startup.

If you want to start from a clean slate, a reboot shouldn't be
necessary. I do the following to get a fresh/reinitialized client.

# killall -9 venus
# umount /coda
# rmmod coda
# touch /usr/coda/venus.cache/INIT  # or start venus with '-init' flag
# venus
