Log full of messages "finding" "new" interfaces.

What's up with this?

 

I noticed recently that my /var/log/retroclient.log file is **full** of messages like this:

 

03 00:09:51: NetCheckNewInterfaces: found new address 71.39.101.61:0

I *think* this is new behavior, but have not dug back into old, restored log files to verify.
 
Reboot doesn't fix it.
 
It's not a major issue, but does not seem right, and makes the log file useless.
 
I get new messages every 5 seconds, whether the client is "on" or "off". Unlike older clients, it appears that I can't actually KILL the client, as it just gets restarted by launchd.
 
This is the 11.5.2 client running on OSX 10.8.5

I note that this is still happening. I also note that the retroclient.log file appears to be a "circular" file, where new data is written "on top" of existing data to the end, and then started over at the beginning. This saves disk space, but it would still be nice to have useful data in the file rather than repeats of the same message.

 

The reason I noticed this was that I had 4 active IP addresses on this machine, so there were 5 lines of output every 5 seconds, rather than 2. I thought it was a bug related to the "extra" IPs, but that appears not to be the case.
