Doing this is likely to be confusing, since it will appear to "work"
until the fileserver is restarted, and it will re-register the same
addresses again, so the 'bad' address will come back later.

And you can remove an IP from a fileserver without restarting it; the
'vos setaddrs' you wrote can do it. I would really recommend letting the
fileserver register its addresses itself, but if you can't restart...
