@Corazon - Do you think that I can ignore this message? It doesn't seem to affect the performance of the machine in any way but I dont like thinking that I have this unsolved issue....

As long as I knew that the message wasn't indicating an actual problem, which it isn't, I could live with it. I'd sure want to find a way to turn off the message itself, though.
