Network error/Info messages

I keep getting tons of the following lines in /var/log/Messages:

May 9 22:15:26 liron pptp[1137]: anon log[decaps_greptp_gre.c:388]: buffering packet 696 (expecting 690, lost or reordered)

My connection runs OK, so what does it mean? Is it ok and what would be the
way to avoid these from logging? it just created a 4.6MB file...

Check your PPTP configuration file, i think it may be logging from there. Nothing to worry about network wise though, lost/reordered packets are common on every network.
