No, there is a client actually running *on* the server, so clearly it
should not be timing out.  It doesn't seem to be giving -110 errors, it
is giving:

  Coda Kernel/Venus communications (module), v5.3.8,
  coda_read_super: rootfid is (0x7f000000,0x1,0x1)
  Failure of coda_cnode_make for root: error -6

venus.log says:

  [ A(17) : 0000 : 22:52:54 ] adv_daemon::main()
  [ H(06) : 0000 : 22:52:54 ] HDBDaemon about to sleep on hdbdaemon_sync
  [ X(00) : 0000 : 22:52:54 ] CHILD: mount system call failed. Killing

It is a server problem not a venus problem.  I know this because I have
three different clients on three different computers that all do the
same thing when I try to connect to the server.  The same clients can
connect to the cmu test server fine.
