Well interesting... I see nothing on another client for the directory
'121canon'.. Which would explain why the servers don't think it's there.

When I was doing this, I had two copies going at the same time, so there was a
lot of network traffic. 

Is there some state (rvm on a client or server) I should save off before
doing a 'venus -init' on the client with the conflict?
