And a lot of metadata which is associated with the files in /vicepa is
stored in RVM, version vectors, directories, ACL's etc. The only way to
populate a Coda server is exactly the way you describe.

That must be some client error I would have expected EPERM or something.
Does anything show up in /usr/coda/etc/venus.log when you try to do
