if the following is your realms file, it should not make any difference,
compared to its absence, as it is not telling your client anything about
the realms
which was probably the meaning of it

at the same time, accessing /coda/
that is listed below like a realm
would be possible without the "realms" file as well  - being a wrong idea

Then to begin playing the movie you would have to wait until the whole
1.6G is fetched into the cache (open() blocks).
Several minutes on a 100Mbit line...

Open will fail with "no space on device", iirc.
