It doesn't help, unfortunately -- we always loop over it, but the question
is why it appears that there's data to read.

I have two thoughts on what we could do to avoid this problem, at least in
the short term:

- special case in CHANreadloop to never call SITEreader, since we're
  already checking (cp->Type == CTfree)

- modify SITEreader to only log that error once per instance of innd

I can do either of these with no trouble, but they're both a bit ugly so I
won't unless other people think it's a good idea.
