epmd spamming syslog

I've noticed that epmd is logging this message to syslog about twice per minute.  The server is running an instance of rabbitmq and no other Erlang processes.  Can anyone provide some insight as to why epmd would log this message so frequently?  It appears to be logged at the end of the epmd_main function in epmd.c.

Apr  9 15:43:43 asdf epmd: epmd: epmd running - daemon = 1
Apr  9 15:43:43 asdf epmd: epmd: epmd running - daemon = 1


static int epmd_main(int argc, char** argv, int free_argv)
...
	dbg_printf(g,0,"epmd running - daemon = %d",g->is_daemon);
