Bingo, except it was the other way around.  The install scripts name
venus with a full path so got the new one (built with debian/rules
which uses --prefix=/usr), but cfs I called from the command line, so
it picked up the old one which was built with a bare `./configure'.

Sorry, that was dumb (well, actually, it's the kind of thinko that
package management systems help to prevent---progress)!

Anyway, now that PMSes are a regular part of Coda, I just do a search
and destroy on the old files, confident that I can back up to any
version of Coda for which I have .debs with a minimum of fuss.
