Very strange

An inn 2.2.1 machine lost power overnight, and it has one of those !$@#$!#$
ATX-type power supplies so it didn't come back up when the power to the room
was restored, needing somebody to restart it manually last night after I'd
left.  Since it restarted, however, every two minutes I saw this in news.err:

Nov  1 09:06:05 freenet9 innfeed[327]: ME locked cannot setup peer xcski.com

This didn't stop until I did a "ctlinnd reload all ''".  Pid 326 is
controlchan, and pid 327 is innfeed.  Any idea what I should be looking for in
the logs for a clue?
