Any idea on how to keep it off?  I -forced it, and it disappeared from
the "vos listvol" output, at least.  But when I tried to addsite to
bring it back, I got this:

wchow@ein:~/vols$ vos addsite fs0.dev /vicepa dfs.200510
Added replication site fs0.dev /vicepa for volume dfs.200510
wchow@ein:~/vols$ vos release dfs.200510 -verbose
