Hmm.  I don't know if this is exactly working for me.  It works
sometimes, and I do have my realm server in /etc/hosts with it's IP
address.  I think most of the time, it ends up being a broken link,
though, when I startup disconnected.  I'll have to verify that.

I've been noticing that, in connected mode startup, venus will die when
I retrieve a token for my HOME dir user, and it attempts to reintegrate
changes.  It didn't happen to me this morning, but it happens very
often.  I end up having to venus -init to clear the cache and "start
over" fresh.  I'm using the Debian packages from the repository hosted
on the CMU site.
