Yes, I am also getting this error. I posted a message to this list a few
days ago, and so far there has been no response. Similar messages from
others including yourself have also met with little response. Hence I
have filed a bug in the hope that it might get sorted out that way:


If this is caused by an obvious misconfiguration on on my part, and
that's why nobody is responding, I would appreciate being told so.
However if that is the case then the log message could really do with
being a bit more informative.
