btw, the crash occurred because we were trying to create two directory
entries with the same (server) name, but pointing at different (volume
replica) objects for the server-server repair directory.

    dir224 -> 1000004.x.x
    dir225 -> 2000004.x.x
    dir225 -> 200000a.x.x

I wonder why it creates the expanded directory as soon as the conflict
is detected though. We haven't even called beginrepair yet. The code
probably always expands a conflict internally, but masks the fact that
it is already expanded by returning the dangling symlink attributes
until the volume has been marked as 'repair session active'.
