That is because the global object doesn't exist.

Not sure, file repair has not been part of the 'repair' tool for that
long. The old solution was to use the 'filerepair' command. I believe
you run that by giving it the preferred replacement file. So if you want
to simply replace the conflict with an empty file it would be something

    touch /tmp/empty
    filerepair /coda/test_domain/test_vol/test_dir/test_file /tmp/empty

This is more likely to work because it is a bit more mature, from the
error message it looks like the repair tool got confused and believes we
are trying to repair a directory conflict.
