[erlang-questions] epmd spamming syslog

Each time I've seen this it was due to epmd restarting for some reason.  
Since there are many reasons that epmd can restart I couldn't guess in 
your case what's happening.   Check epmd's pid over the course of 
several minutes and see if it is stopping and then restarting.

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.
