Coda File System

Write errors on coda filesystems ...

After setting up coda correctly (as far as I can tell) I was now
trying to actually use the coda volume... anyway, using regular shell
command to store files, I get different errors and warnings, usually
resulting in corrupt files on the code volume, e.g.:

dig:/coda # cp /tmp/htdig.tgz .
cp: writing `./htdig.tgz': Invalid argument
dig:/coda # ls -l /tmp/htdig.tgz htdig.tgz 
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      4298648 Apr  2 13:11 /tmp/htdig.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 codadmin nogroup   1998848 Apr 18 14:51 htdig.tgz
(exiting root)
garry_at_dig:~ > cp /tmp/htdig.tgz /coda/
cp: writing `/coda/htdig.tgz'
garry_at_dig:~ > ls -l /coda/htdig*
-rw-r--r--    1 codadmin nogroup   2301952 Apr 18 14:53
/coda/htdig.tgz
garry_at_dig:~ > cp /tmp/htdig.tgz /coda/
garry_at_dig:~ > ls -l /coda/htdig.tgz 
-rw-r--r--    1 codadmin nogroup   4265880 Apr 18 14:53
/coda/htdig.tgz

In all cases, I'm logged in as user admin in coda (clog admin) on the
server that maintains the physical code volume ... another test
resulted in something like this (sorry for the german error messages
...)

garry_at_dig:/coda > cp /tmp/htdig.tgz test
cp: writing `test': Das Argument ist ungültig	[ invalid argument ]
garry_at_dig:/coda > cp /tmp/htdig.tgz test
cp: writing `test'
garry_at_dig:/coda > cp /tmp/htdig.tgz test
cp: writing `test': Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden [file or
directory not found]
garry_at_dig:/coda > ls -l test
-rw-r--r--    1 codadmin nogroup    958464 Apr 18 14:56 test
garry_at_dig:/coda > cp /tmp/htdig.tgz test
garry_at_dig:/coda > ls -l test
-rw-r--r--    1 codadmin nogroup   4298648 Apr 18 14:56 test

What's going on here??? Am I doing something wrong here?

Help appreciated,
