host339384 init: Id "T1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
 
I see this message repeats every 5 minutes in /var/log/messages.
Anyone knows what that means?
I can provide more details if needed.

Check the file /etc/inittab. You should have an entry like T1:xx:respawn:command. The command is that causing the problem. Also take a look at the inittab man page:
Code:

respawn
        The process will be restarted whenever it terminates (e.g. getty).

and at the init man:
Code:

If init finds that it is continuously respawning an entry more than 10 times in 2 minutes, it
will  assume  that  there is an error in the command string, generate an error message on the
system console, and refuse to respawn this entry until either 5 minutes  has  elapsed  or  it
receives  a  signal.  This  prevents it from eating up system resources when someone makes a
typographical error in the /etc/inittab file or the program for the entry is removed.
