The only time that I have seen this message is when I attempted to connect
two reflectors together with the mirroring facility. Once I removed the
line that did the mirroring, it worked fine.

An unrelated problem, has anyone running the reflector on a Linux box seen
the machine hang with no trace of an error? My problem happens when there
is a load on the ppp connection and a heavy use of the reflector.
