Already thought of that, not good enough.  Apparently an actual Coda
connection to the server is required.  If you go "cfs disconnect; ls
/coda" before accessing /coda in any way, you get the dangling
symlink.  "cfs resconnect; cfs checkservers; ls /coda" -> Bingo!

Someday your battery is going to go wonky (that's why I prefer to shut
down, and one of Coda's NetBSD buddies is in that situation too IIRC).
Fix it now, for your own good.  ;-)
