Bah.  It was uncommented for a while, I just didn't change the copy of the
file that I edit.  Now syslog says:

Line 106 says """@times = map {sprintf "%.10e", $_ / $self->{pingfactor}}

I don't know perl, so I don't know how to fix it.  But it looks like
"$self->{pingfactor}" got broken somehow.

I have never seen that message.

Those of you who think you know everything are very annoying to those
of us who do.
