I'm pretty sure that no setuid (or other) application is writing to a file 
located on the codashare. (lsof did not show up anything there.) I also 
checked, that the client is properly authenticated, and chowned all files in 
the share (on server and client) to the same uid, the one I logged in with. 
Coda writes ENOTCON to syslog, when starting coda-client. Still, 
WriteDisconnected, though. cfs cs reports all servers being up,

I noticed one oddity, dmesg says:
Coda Kernel/Venus communications, v5.3.18,
Shouldn't that be 6.x? I couldn't find anything noting a newer version number 
in the patch, so this information might not be valid. (Im using a 2.4.26 
vanilla with patches for swsusp, bootsplash, supermount (not used for coda) 
and the linux-2.4-coda.patch from the coda-6.0.5 source package. coda-client 
is 6.0.6.

I'll keep you informed, once I know more about the problem.
