But that would mean that there has to be a core-dump somewhere. I haven't
seen one of those around, even a locate didn't find a core file.

I don't know: First of all, what is SFTP?

Glad to hear this.

Ok, let's start with the server:

And this is my updated client:
lwp, rpc2, rvm the same packages as on the server

I've got another client with "older" packages (everything minus two

Now I start the server and my client with the newer versions. After a
command like "cfs cs" vice crashes with a CRASH-file in /vice/srv.
Then I delete the CRASH-file, restart vice and try to access it through
my other client with the older packages. No crash, everything works fine.

This is why I tried to downgrade my updated client and installed
coda-debug-client-5.3.13-1 on it again but kept the newer lwp, rpc2 and
rvm versions (was that wise?) but now starting venus won't even mount my
partition. Sorry, I do not have an output of this error right now but
tell me if you need one. Anyway, I upgraded again to have at least access
to my cached data.

I'd be glad to give you more information, just ask for it.
