Did not get DONE/CLOSE event for Wheel ID 73 from IP at
/usr/share/perl5/POE/Component/Server/ line 221.
I had a problem posting to event Got_Request of session SOAPServer for
DIR handler '.*'. As reported by Kernel: 'No such file or directory',
perhaps the session name is spelled incorrectly for this handler? at
/usr/share/perl5/POE/ line 483.

This has happened to me twice now, and it takes the bot down.

not sure how exploitable this is though.
