Hmm, that is the fid that is returned by, cfs getfid. I can only thing
of 2 possible things right now. Either cfs mkm was not used, but mkdir,
so the volume was never mounted and everything that you thought was
stored in that volume is really stored in your coda.root volume.

Or, looking at the description of the apparent loop, somehow the
mountlink resolves back to /coda/homes, maybe the wrong argument was
given to cfs mkm? But there should be code that catches at least this
type of loop, as it normally confuses the kernel when a filesystem does

You could try to do a cfs rmm /coda/homes/pgehler.
