Unfortunately, this happens if I try to run venus on the Coda server
itself.  That server is at 2.2.14.

Nope, it works if I point it at the CMU test server. :(

O.K., then that's a red herring.

20:43:37 New SrvLog started at Tue Feb  8 20:43:37 2000

20:43:37 Resource limit on data size are set to 2147483647

20:43:37 Server etext 0x813fa03, edata 0x81878b0
20:43:37 No RvmType selected!

That looks like a memory-mapping problem to me.  I'm not sure what
"No RvmType selected" means, though.

I'll bet that's the problem.  I'll try re-running rdsinit and see what
