It looks like the it was changed from LogLevel 1 to -1 in the LKA
patches. It's at line 462 in coda-src/vice/ if you want to
change it.

These messages are caused by clients who are trying to reestablish
callbacks after a disconnection. Pretty harmless, but as you can it is
slightly verbose. It will stop as soon as the clients have established a
callback for all cached objects, until ofcourse they are disconnected at
some later point in time.

You can use coda-server-logrotate, or the following logrotate
configuration file to get a daily rotation of the logfiles.

# Rotate the Coda server logs once a day
/vice/srv/SrvLog /vice/srv/SrvErr {
	rotate 7
	create 0644 root root
	    /usr/bin/killall -HUP codasrv

delaycompress and create are probably not necessary. killall can be
replaced by either "/bin/kill -HUP `/bin/cat /vice/srv/pid`" or
"/usr/sbin/volutil swaplog".
