Coda File System

Repair not seeing local mutations

I just installed a coda server and two clients (one client beeing the
server itself). While performing some basic tests I encountered the
following problem. I disconnect one client and then modify a file on both
clients to provoke a conflict. After reconnecting the disconnected client
the conflicting file is correctly changed into a dangling symlink. The
beginrepair command of the repair application changes the symlink into a
directory containing a local and a global file as expected. But the
listlocal command then says that there are no mutations even though the
cml file mentioned by repair correctly lists them. Therefore I'm unable to
resolve the conflict. The logs don't show any errors. Both clients show
the same behaviour. The problem persists after completely reinstalling
coda on the server and the clients. Here's my setup:

Fedora Core 1
Kernel Module 6.0.0 from here:
Coda 6.0.3, lwp 1.10, rpc2-1.20 and rvm 1.8 from SRPMS

The server runs vanilla kernel 2.4.22 while the client runs Fedora kernel
2.4.22. Any help is appreciated.

Kind Regards
