   If you want to force a reintegration of already logged operations it is
   better to use 'cfs forcereintegrate' (or 'cfs fr').

   cfs strong changes the reintegration parameters of a volume so that any
   further operations are synchronously reintegrated, but it doesn't start
   reintegration for already logged operations.


You should probably add the "reintegrate" option to the cfs man page; it's not
there (it is in the "cfs help" output, though). My man page 
comes from the coda-client-6.9.1-1 rpm.

   It may be that the new reintegration parameters set by cfs strong are
   causing some sort of a problem. I'll have to see if I can reproduce the

Yeah, the venus-at-100%-of-cpu thing is pretty common right after
I get back on the net; it usually lasts for about 10-15 minutes.
During this time, by the way, codacon is pretty calm -- it's not
blasting out "validate" messages or anything.
