I was thinking of removing the address that is in there.  From what I
remember, the problem is that the vlserver thinks another server is
the one that has that IP address (I never figured out how I got
in that situation; I believe you could probably do it by doing a 
"vos changeaddr" to change the vlserver's notion of the server's addrss
to something else, starting the fileserer again, and doing vos syncvldb.

>From looking at the source to the vlserver, it seems like it doesn't
start logging anything interesting unless you have a loglevel of
at least 5.  It might be worth cranking up the loglevel to that
to see if you get some more useful messages in VLLog.
