Yes, sorry.

The symptoms were a bit weird, I could see the .directories is I did an "ls 
-ls" but if I did "ls -l /coda/....../.thunderbird" then that particular 
directory would disapear.

I did re-start the client (venus) a bunch of times, but that did not fix the 
problem (usually does with every other problem), so I assume it was an issue 
with coda itself.

I have now re-started the server and the whole problem is gone.
