Every 5 minutes I get the following entries…

I have done some research and found a few postings with the same issue, none if which have resolved my issue. Some signs points to an IP4/6 issue? Any help would be appreciated.
When I moved from Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10, my munin graphs also stopped working. My understanding is that this is a problem relating to IPV6, but I could not find much about it either. I struggled with the [munin and munin-node] config files for a while to no avail. Perl's Server::Net seemed to be noted as having an error that relates to the problem, but again I could not find definitive information other that noting a Debian upstream fix for Server::Net that is not in Ububtu 12.10 yet. I beat my head on it for a while, and finally decided to ride it out and wait for the next Ubuntu version.
That is what I was afraid of. I was pretty surprised that there was very little detail on this. I kinda figured at first I would Google the error and have a fix in no time….that was not the case. I am still thinking it has something to do with the IP4/6 but no idea exactly how. I expected this to be a more common issue than it seems to be.
That page has a work around for munin 1.4 or you could install the svn version.
