FWIW, I just saw something I never saw before: an "Operation already
in progress" error followed by a recovery and (all of 60 seconds so
far ;-) normal operation.  Starting from the tail of the mount
sequence (I'd already cycled the restart-reintegrate-crash sequence
three times):

19:31:20 /coda now mounted.

19:31:25 Reintegrate xe:21-5 pending tokens for uid = 1000
19:31:26 Resolved realm ''
19:31:32 Reintegrate: xe:21-5, 100/460 records, result = Operation already in progress
19:31:48 Reintegrate: xe:21-5, 100/360 records, result = SUCCESS
19:31:52 Reintegrate: xe:21-5, 100/260 records, result = SUCCESS
19:31:55 Reintegrate: xe:21-5, 100/160 records, result = SUCCESS
19:32:00 Reintegrate: xe:21-5, 60/60 records, result = SUCCESS

I wonder if maybe something in my server's log got wedged at some
point, and Coda has been slowly working it out?  Always in the past
once I got one "Already in progress" I've had to work it out 100
records at a time until all CMLs were processed.  (I say server
because I've gotten the same crash on my roadwarrior client as well as
on the local client, and because reinitializing the client doesn't
prevent it from happening again on a regular basis.)

Details on request, of course, but I get the impression you're not
putting high priority on this right now.
