IGMP snooping explicit-tracking syslog message

Hey guys,

I'm getting this syslog message every minute or so on my core Catalyst 6513 (s72033_rp-IPSERVICESK9_WAN-M), Version 12.2(33)SXI5:

%MCAST-SPSTBY-6-ETRACK_STATS_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: Number of entries in IGMP snooping explicit-tracking statistics has exceeded the maximum limit (70000)

So I do this:

cat6513#sh ip igmp snooping explicit-tracking

        Current number of entries: 12439                Configured DB size limit: 70000

                                                  <output omitted>

I believe this next show command is unrelated, but here it is anyway:

cat6513#sh ip igmp snooping statistics

  Current number of Statistics entries    : 11281

  Configured Statistics database limit    : 70000

  Configured Statistics database threshold: 56000

  Configured Statistics database limit    : Not exceeded

  Configured Statistics database threshold: Not exceeded

                                                  <output omitted>

Am I missing something here, or does this seem like an erroneous syslog message?  I've considered a clear ip igmp snooping statistics, but since the statistics do not appear to be exceeded, felt that I'd rather not unless I know what the problem is.

Did you find a solution/answer to this?

I see the same log messages about every minute or so on a vss running same ios version (SXI5)
