Yes, on FreeBSD we seem to use /usr/local/etc/rc.d/rc.vice to start all
servers, rather than individual scripts for each.

What is the content of /vice/db/scm on both servers ?
Also, what happens to a volume that exists on only on NONSCM ?

It seems likely that the problems you are experiencing are not necessarily
related to the choice of operating system. However, the ports
collection now includes Coda 5.3.13, so you may want to update your ports
collection to use it, as it includes other fixes over 5.3.9.
