And now I may know why.  In /usr/lib/amanda/calcsize.coda, I changed
LOGFILE to /tmp/calcsize.coda-`date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S` and ran it as root.
Seemed to work perfectly.  su - backup.  Ran it as the backup user
(which is what Debian uses for Amanda).  The following error spit out:

Wed Feb 25 12:08:38 CST 2004 -- sendsize coda.root started
/usr/lib/amanda/calcsize.coda: line 1: volutil: command not found

Apparently, backup cannot see the volutil command in its PATH.  I'm
going to hardcode the location, since backup does not by default have
its PATH set to /usr/sbin... etc., and try again.  I'm also wondering if
the backup user has the correct permissions to be allowed to export
data, etc. from coda volumes?
