error on subcontainer 'ia_addr' insert (-1)

This was being written with each connect. It seems that this is a harmless debugging message and the fix appears to be to change the OPTIONS setting in “/etc/sysconfig/snmpd” from

Which means log only LOG_INFO level messages and above to the syslog using the “daemon” facility.

This is annoying since I was using -Lf, but adding the “6” there for the log level causes net-snmpd to create the file as a socket instead of a regular file. It seems that there is no method to filter the debugging notices when logging to a file.
