That's right.  This is seem more often during startup than it used to
be, since we now don't allocate IPs to nodes until they are in the
"RUNNING" runstate, which means that the "startup" event has completed.

Those messages are somewhat difficult to avoid.  If they were easy to
avoid then I would have gotten rid of them.  However, I've taken
another look and I see a possible but slightly ugly way...  I'll add it
to the list...  :-)

peace & happiness,
