Not sure which error you are worried about,

These are not a problem, the first time venus was started, the cache
size was set to 100000, so it based the number of cacheable files and
related items from that number. For some reason the cache is set for
10000, so everything is off by a factor 10, but venus doesn't know if it
is safe to discard anything so it is ignoring the new setting until it
is started with '-init' or alternatively if a file named INIT exists in
the cache directory.

This could be a problem because we previously ignored the cache size
change. I think it is safe even with a full cache since it will only
discard data that is considered clean.

I think this is harmless, something sent a signal to venus, it could be
that your liblwp is using sigaltstack to fork off new threads, or the
makecontext implementation is using something similar. Or maybe this is
because the mount of /coda has completed and we signal the main process
to detach from the terminal.
