What version of the client are you running?

If it is 6.9.0, then you could try

    # close the repair session
    cfs collapse /path/to/conflict  (or cfs endrepair ...)

    # check local changes
    cfs listlocal /path/to/conflict

If there is anything in the log that may be interesting,

    # check local changes
    cfs checkpointml /path/to/conflict  (or cfs ck ...)
    cp /usr/coda/spool/<uid>/<volume>.tar /tmp/saved_local_files.tar

Then we can try to drop just the first conflicting log record from the
CML, once we clear that the rest may just reintegrate normally

    # discard the conflicting entry
    cfs discardlocal /path/to/conflict

If that doesn't work it is also possible to purge all local changes from
the log,

    cfs purgeml /path/to/conflict
