If the kernel module has a reference count, then either /coda is mounted
or there is still a venus process running on your system. The use count
is tracked by the Linux kernel based on the number of mounts + the
number of users of /dev/cfs0.

I don't know why you are seeing these problems, and without logs or some
description of the operations that are failing there isn't much I can do
about it.

The only thing I know is that you are (were) trying to use coda-6.0.15
over a roadrunner dsl line. That isn't much to go on.
