The SM is complaining that it got a token with token type of '0', which it
doesn't know how to handle (which isn't surprising, since all the existing
definied SM classes have type numbers 2 or higher).  Sounds like the 
buffindexed overview code is sometimes spewing bogus token info (all-zeroes,
maybe) that nnrpd then tries to use.  That'd be my guess, anyway.

Not sure how you'd debug this further, as I'm not familiar with the
buffindexed internals.
