Thanks for the tip,  I'll remove the cable tonight.  Can I replace the broken 
cable without removing the rear hub?

My concern would be where the cable broke at and is it going to come loose 
inside the drum and get wedged between the drum and the brake shoe. I have had 
this happen while going down the road. It's a real rude awakening. If you don't 
have another cable right now, I would remove what remains of the broken cable 
from inside the drum.

understand exactly what you mean, but sounds like one E brake cable broke and 
not the other.  This would mean that the e brake is holding on the side that is 
not broken, which it should.  You can drive it as is and only have a 
functioning e brake on one side or get on the phone and order a new one from 
Wolfsburg West (they should have them in stock) and replace it when it comes 
in.  The replacement is about an hours

  Thanks Ken and Denis, I know there are some issues with year model changes 
and the vw folks using up things on hand from previous years.  

On the hand brake,  one of my cables snapped last night after I tested my 
brakes and parked the bus in the garage.  The brake is still preventing 
movement when engaged.  I don't know if I have time to fix this since I will be 
out of town this weekend.  Does this pose a short term problem?
