I set up a hoard file, as I described earlier:

     a /coda 100:d+

and ran hoard on it, then 'hoard walk', but I had problems.

The output of 'hoard list' is:

     <7f000000, .>, 0, 100:d+

which, I take it, does not include any of the other volumes?
I didn't see an error at the time, but I've noticed since an

        *** Not bound ***  /coda/service/unique/director/etc d+

after 'hoard walk'.

The problem I have is that on my (kerberised) system 'kclog'
or 'kclog <username>' work, but 'kclog -tofile <filename>'
with or without the username or the explicit '-kerberos5' flag
or both always produces:

     kclog -tofile tokens
     username: zlsiial

     Date: Wed 04/12/2000

     08:33:27 In Krb5Init()
     Segmentation fault

I take it there will also be problems because of the time limit
on Kerberos tickets; I can't renew them in disconnected mode, can
I?  Do I need to setup the laptop as a Coda server to enable
disconnected operation when I've compiled with kerberos 5?

Thanks again for your patience.
