Aah. That makes sense, indeed. Thank you!

I changed the IP address of the server yesterday, and also changed its 
hostname to fit the new address. All clients have been changed too, to 
reflect the changes.

If I now issue cfs cs, coda tries to find "mobi" (which is the new owner of 
the IP address formerly used for the server.) instead of "marvin" (which is 
the actual server). I doublechecked that the hostname is known under the new 
IP address on all clients, but coda does seem to ignore that. Instead coda 
tries to reach the new owner of that IP, which fails. So the old IP address 
of the server must be somewhere in the cache, but where? And how can I change 
that? (grep turned not out to be very useful.)
