     Have you been reading this list lately?  It has been reported here
numerous times already, so it's a known bug, but fairly harmless now that
there are enough v3 directory authorities to cover the situation.  You
will notice that the messages occur about once a minute and stop in less
than an hour.  Just ignore them.  The developers will get to it whenever
they have less pressing bugs to fix.
