What is the modification log? I created the tarball backed it up and
deleted the wohle dir witch my userid. Furthermore I moved /usr/coda/LOG
to another place but as venus would not start then I decided that this
file is important and put it back to it's orinignal place. So I ended
having deleted /usr/coda/spool/<userid>. But "cfs lv" still shows the
pending entries, venus still tries to sync the changes with the server,
oh and of course, crashes vice.

What have I done wrong?
