Because you setup venus with 50000 blocks !

File-size < cache-size so no trouble...

Yep... first copie in cache ok...  but the second, as we could guess that venus
did not had the time to flush the first file on the SCM,  free cache size wasn't
enough to store the second file....

Because that's NOT your rootvolume BUT venus cache size !!!!
You can change it using venus-setup...
After installation rootvolume quota is unlimited..

> why is venus always getting a zombie ?

Because probleme's still not fixed !!!

Do you have CML pending entries in venus startup log ????
( I don't think so because you crashed venus ...perhaps....)

If i where you i would purge cache objects, and grow-up venus size... 
You can't do anything interesting with such a value....

That's one most powerful feather of coda... You can replicate volumes on
multiple server, so data are still availaible, can be modified, etc... when a
server is down, because venus automaticaly switch to an availaible replika...
