Are we sure this is the same problem?

This sounds like a harmless extraneous warning message. I get an email
sent to root, some stuff in the log, and then the system crashes. "No
adverse effects"?

So ... this does not help me understand what is wrong and what I am
supposed to do (apparently nothing?). What process did you go through
to find this answer? I appreciate you doing my work for me, but I'd
appreciate it even more if you gave me some hints how to figure this
out myself next time.
