I tried cfs flushcache, flushobject and others, but that didn't help. I 
(probably) solved the inconsistancy by (re)starting venus with -init.

The volume was in a very strange state btw: there were no pending changes but 
the inconsistent directory had the _localhost and [server] directory as 
normal readable entries without beginrepair and the volume was not writeable, 
but showed as read/write in cfs lv. The good client never had these entries.

So, all's well that ends well but I still have never been able to do a proper 
repair. Is repair working or a tool so much in development that it isn't 
deemed to do anything at all at the moment?
