Hi Alan,

I don't think there are any version problems, the GetRootVolume is the
first rpc request that is sent to the server. It either doesn't reach
our testserver, or the reply doesn't make it back to you back.

I did notice that the testserver was responding with BUSY's a lot, so it
probably ran out of worker threads. I restarted the server, maybe it
will work now?
