What message do you think I posted?

It was this one and it has the "Error in packet":

[upswallleft] nut_snmp_get: Error in 
packet: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.

Where exactly do see any mention of "debug" or "warning"?

No, there was only one set of messages that prompted me to post and 
they were reported as errors and they are indeed being continuously 
output to the system log.

I saw that it was using tcp-wrappers, but I wouldn't have guessed 
localhost and would be interpreted differently. For one 
thing, I have them as equivalent in /etc/hosts and they ordinarily 
are equivalent, so tcp-wrappers documentation could also be clarified
