i upgraded both my backup server and my coda server to 6.0.1. after doing
this, the backup failed, crashing my coda server in the process:


00:17:13 VAttachVolumeById: vol 1000016 ( attached and online
00:17:13 S_VolMakeBackups: backup (1000016) made of volume 1000006 
00:17:13 GrowVnodes: growing Small list from 47104 to 47616 for volume 0x1000017
(and then it dies)

00:17:43 Dump of volume 7f000005 failed!

00:17:43 MarkAncient of 7f000005 failed!

however, i was able to get the backups going again simply by purging
the backup volumes. ie. volutil purge 1000016 myvolume.0.backup
for each volume.

while i was happy to workaround the problem, i thought i would report
it as a potential bug.
