What's happening is that venus is mistaking the logfile for one of
its cache files, realizing that it doesn't expect it to contain anything
useful, and deleting it. Oops. 

The two quick ways around it are to either :

1) set logfile to be somewhere not in the /usr/coda/venus.cache directory
2) change line 152 of coda-src/venus/ from
	 STREQ(namelist[i]->d_name, VenusLogFile) ||
to :
	 STREQ(namelist[i]->d_name, "venus.log") ||
