	None of the above; the system was left running on AC power while I went
off and did other things; "upon returning" referred to my return.

	updatedb on my system is configured to ignore /coda, so that shouldn't
be a problem.

	I'll see what I can do. I may take Maurice's advice and try the network
console; either way, the system should destabilize tomorrow evening. :)
