cups error log: possible DoS attack

I am trying to configure cups on my gentoo system. It seems to freeze (my browser locks up). When I check the cups error log, I have a bunch of these errors:

W [28/Apr/2003:16:33:24 -0600] Possible DoS attack - more than 10 clients connecting from localhost!

How do I keep this from happening? Thanks for the help.

Well I unmerged cups and re-emerged it and the problem went away. I must have had a corrupted version or something. ANyways, all is well on the printing front again.
