The problem was that my server has 2 IP addresses (on different subnets).
The client was on subnet B and the server reported its IP address as being
on subnet A, which is not routable for the client. 

I can fix the problem by explicitly setting the IP address of the server in
the server config file.

What is failing is the mount(something on /coda) system call. Most likely
/coda didn't get unmounted the last time venus was shutdown.

Like Steffen said in his mail, there are multiple possible reasons for the
umount to fail. You can try "umount /coda", if that fails any of the causes
he mentions could be the reason umount is failing.

lsof | grep /coda, and kill are your friends here.
