The coda server is running, since I can connect from other machines. When
I try to run Venus, I get:

bash-2.04# venus-setup <machine> 10000
bash-2.04# venus

Almost instantly. I get the same error if I use localhost instead of
<machine>. The machine name is mapped in /etc/hosts, too.

Are there any known library problems that would cause this? The server is
running Linux kernel 2.2.16, libc version 2.1.3.
