Hello Jack,

I've seen the same message on one of our switches some days ago.

I also remember a thread where someone was referring to a bug where a device treats the reception of keepalive messages as a sign of a loop (wrongly)

The reception of its own keepalive messages is a sign of a healthy link.

Hope to help
