Any crash such as this should leave some information in either
/usr/coda/etc/venus.log or /usr/coda/etc/console. At the -d 10 level the
venus log should at least have a lot of information about what venus was
doing right before crashing.

Would you mind sending me those files in private, as they can sometimes
be quite big and I don't think many people would appreciate to get them
through codalist_at_coda ;)
