Coda File System

Unresolvable Conflicts

I have 2 Problems on my notebook:

I have a conflicting subdirectory ("DEBIAN") which should not conflict, 
because it never existed on the server or any client except my notebook. So, 
if I try to repair the conflict, repair says

repair > beginrepair DEBIAN
Too few directory entries
Could not allocate replica list
beginrepair failed.
repair > quit

with "DEBIAN" being a directory containing the local directory and a dead 
symlink to the global copy, which never existed. Another repair on this 
Unless I resolve this, this volume won't be reintegrated (I already have 
accumulated 957 CMLs ;-)

On another volume, I had this strage behaviour today:

martin_at_gwaihir:/coda/darkzone/organizer$ ls -l
ls: kcal-remote: Die Wartezeit für die Verbindung ist abgelaufen
ls: knotes: Die Wartezeit für die Verbindung ist abgelaufen
insgesamt 4
drwxr-xr-x    2 martin   nogroup      2048 2004-06-09 07:55 adressen
drwxr-xr-x    2 martin   nogroup      2048 2004-07-01 19:52 kalender

(German for "Connection timed out"). I already restarted the server components 
and the client, nothing happens. This volume stays disconnected, too.

What can I do (except backing up everything from another client, removing the 
two volumes and making new ones) ?
