Coda File System

User id mapping

I finally got a chance to set up a coda server separate from my coda client.
One of the things I noticed was that doing an "ls" in /coda yieled incorrect
owner usernames. At first I thought, sure, it's because it's using the
server's user ID which doesn't correspond to my local ids.

But then I noticed that the coda id was 1000, the local id was 1003 (output
of ctokens), BUT the id that showed up as ownder of the files was 1004!

Where did 1004 come from?
