Coda File System

Performance problem

Now that I have my coda server & client configured (except for setting
passwords for user accounts which I haven't figured out yet, see
previous post), I want to start using it.  For some reason, however, it
seems to be very slow even though the server and client are on a 100
MB/s network.

I tried copying a big file as well as a lot of small files and the
performance is an order of magnitude less than with secure copy.  For
example, it took 57 seconds to copy a file of 1.5 MB onto the coda
system whereas scp needed 1.5 seconds (including the login).  

To test the speed of the network connection between both machines, I had
scp copy a file of 70MB which took some 13 seconds, some 5.4 MB/s.
Hence, the network doesn't seem to be a bottleneck.

Any suggestions on what is the matter?
