Both servers have a complete version of the file, but this was not so
when I started the server because (following my interpretation of the
instructions in the HOWTO and User Manual) I edited /vice/db/servers and
/vice/db/VSGDB *after* the SCM server was already up and running.  I
have now reinstalled again and edited those files *before* starting the
SCM server (I think the documentation should be changed to make this
clear), and that seems to have fixed at least the crashing problem for
now.  However now I am reliably getting "Connection timed out" once
again when trying to read or write files to the mountpoints on either
server.  No obvious errors accompany the timeouts in any log files. 
Where to from here? :-)
