The reflector has trouble running in the background in multicast mode.
not sure why. If you do not run it in the background (with an ampersand)
you will realize that it works fine, for hours on end, until you do
something to the terminal. Only then does it give that error message.

If you keep a window dedicated to the reflector (hidden or whatever)
you are fine till you log out. I got around this by saying
'nohup reflect reflect.conf &'
i logged in and logged out no problem for a few days. today
i hit a snag and needed to reboot. when i tried the same command
it didn't allow it. I'm in the process of finding out why.
That solution SHOULD work for EVERYONE, ALL the time. If anyone
knows or has any idea why it doesn't work for me now, please let
me know.
