Im not a absolutely sure on this but i'll take a stab at it .
the first part
05:44:59.621834 is the time that this entry was logged on the computer.
802.1d is the Spanning-Tree Protocol specification. It is used to eliminate loops and provide backup links between switches and bridges

It is most likely that you are running some kind of service on your box that has enabled stp (Spanning-Tree Protocol) disable this service if you are not using it most like for a bridge or switch software. Unless this was captured off the wire which i doubt, in which case you can probably just ignore it.
