It slipped my mind that there were messages from createvol_rep.  That
was much earlier in my dinking around, and I was never clear on whether
what I was seeing was expected or not.  To wit:

[root_at_sagarmatha linux]# createvol_rep codaroot E0000100 /vicepa
Getting initial version of /vice/vol/BigVolumeList.
V_BindToServer: binding to host
GetVolumeList finished successfully
V_BindToServer: binding to host
Servers are ( )
V_BindToServer: binding to host
GetVolumeList finished successfully
Found no partitions for server

I wasn't sure if that was expected before completion of setup or not.
