The peerid is generated by the "tahoe create-client" command (which
is, confusingly, also the command to create a server). The nodeid is
stored in "private/storage.furl" and in "my_nodeid". See docs/
configuration.txt for details about those files: http://allmydata.org/
So the easiest solution is that if you want to create a second
client, run the "tahoe create-client" command a second time and it
will generate a new nodeid. Don't copy an existing .tahoe directory
as a way to create a second client.
