Ok. By the way, the problem exists on 64bit PC/Linux, or all 64bit
architectures and OSs?

Also, what's the current state of the Coda kernel module support for
non-linux systems? (Do all of solaris, freebsd and netbsd work?)

Right. That's about the impression I got from reading the open bug ticket
and archived ML posts.

What I was aiming at, was asking whether with the availability of my
test setup and developer accounts, we could work together to get this
fixed within the acceptable timeframe (five months from now).
I'm asking because, while I could do testing and time-consuming tasks, the
real brain would be all yours in the beginning.
