Any time I have problems with reintegration or venus I immediately
grab a copy of the latest tar file (or just grab both tar files) in
/usr/coda/spool/<user_id>/ which has a copy of all your modified files
as of, at most, 10 minutes ago.  Doing this has saved my work a couple
of times when I have had problems with venus.
