Yes, it is Debian, just found this out by downloading the relevant file 
from Louis's repo, they appear to be turning usershares on without 
actually setting up usershares. I would suggest the code would work if 
usershares were actually set up correctly, I have used usershares in the 
past and I don't remember syslog getting spammed.
