How was now that procedure again to map fs getfid to something in /vicepa/... and then 
look if your file system has inode 7069583278211 or not?

Should not be as the fileserver does normal file operations. I hope
you have not had some other process traversing down /vicepa/ and
altering something. And your /vicepa is not full or running out
of inodes or something like that?

File a bug report with your distro. rc2 does not give me good vibes.
Btw, compiling and installing the file server from source is not that
difficult at all if your distro is stubborn.
