Hey fellas,

when logging off a user on my MacBook, in system.log an error message occurs:

*[5004]: mach_msg (CGXKickEventHandler) failed (ipc/send) timed out*

This message usually repeats a few dozen to a few hundred times. While this doesn't seem to be a problem, I'd like to know what's going on there...

I found a few posts where people get that same error message, but this doesn't seem to cause their problems.

I'd welcome any further information.

P.S. What is that "CGXKickEventHandler" thingy?
MacBook 2.0 GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.1), 2 GB RAM
