OK, I got salvaged.  Repeated cycles of codasrv stop and codasrv start
and redumping.  I captured the bash history, if you want I'll check
the exact sequence of what I did (I think I recall doing the
norton-reinit -dump directly after the server asserted, instead of
doing codasrv start ... stop ... norton-reinit -dump, and of course
the bogus state of the RVM log would be preserved in the dump until I
redumped, right?)

Now I've got a different problem.  The volume with the "unreachable
log entries" cannot be write-connected, there are CMLs from venus but
venus says:

09:54:19 volume xe:21-5 has unrepaired local subtree(s), skip checkpointing CML!

I cannot find any conflicts in that volume.  No symlinks, let alone
dangling ones.  What does this mean?

BTW, that volume contains only a "virgin" CVS checkout of XEmacs, so
purging the volume and recreating would be an acceptable method of
recovery.  It would be nice if this could be solved more directly,
