Re: Venus crashes upon `ls /coda'

 From running venus in conjunction with 'codacon', I've been able to  
learn that the problem seems to be lying on the fact that venus is  
trying to contact an host that doesn't exist anymore. This is  
suspicious, because it seems to be a residue from a previous  
installation. However, I've wiped everything I could think of in the  
client and start with a clean slate but still it tries to connect to  
that old address. Where can this be hidden?
