If you have a singly replicated server, that bug was identified several
months ago.

But the 'quickfix' in that email actually doesn't work right. The real
fix was committed to CVS not long after, and was released with
Coda-6.0.0, which actually miscompiled with several compilers, such as
the default gcc compiler on FreeBSD 4.8.

The compiler issue was fixed in Coda-6.0.1, so you could use that to
build a server with the fixes that make reintegration to singly
replicated volumes more reliable.

If you want to use a Coda-6.0 client, some futher issues were found
after 6.0.1 was released, so for a FreeBSD 4.8 client you would probably
want to build from CVS.

    ln -s /var/tmp/jaharkes/procmaillog /coda/usr/jaharkes/.procmaillog

My /var/tmp directories aren't cleaned out during reboot, so they are
useful for semi-longterm storage of things I never look at anyways ;)
