This is the message the volserver wanted to write into the VolserLog.
Unfortunately afs_error_message(errno) didn't return a usable string so
it came to the crash.
However, if you repeat that experiment you may say "up 4" to get to
dumpstuff.c:1214 and then you can do a
to see which vnode it is.
A possible reason why IH_CREATE could fail is that you already tried
this so many times that in the linktable of the volume all tags for this
vnode number are already in use.
Because of the crashes the volserver didn't remove the remains of the

Tag '2' (character "2") is indeed an unknown tag. So perhaps the dump
file is not really usable.
