Hmm, I have solved the problem, but still don't know what was causing
I have moved some coda files to places I though were more suitable
from my point of view - from /usr/ dir to /etc and /var and changed
appropriate entries in venus.conf
then I run venus-setup myrealm 40000 again and after reboot
everything works fine again (I have write access to the coda dir). 

Such behaviour does make me feel vey uncomfortable because
so far I have been playing with coda to see if it is possible to use
it for a production environment. I guess that could be risky...
