I used the Iphone configuration utility to help a developer troubleshoot an unrelated issue. I noticed that console was being hammared with the same two warnings every few seconds. I don't notice any performance issues, but it's making it impossible to debug anything else. My phone is jailbroken, running IOS: 4.3.3

Any ideas on what could be causing this? Here is a sample of the console output that repeats:

There's so much of that I won't paste it all in, but here are some of the other messages that might help:

And I'm not sure if this is related, but it the only time i found similiar springboard warnings in the log:

Jailbroken iOS devices can easily run into troubles like this. iOS is a closed platform to maintain security and stability and this is pretty solid evidence of the opposite.

Pro-Apple preach aside, the log message overload is caused by an instability in Springboard, caused by this plugin for jailbroken iOS devices:

This isn't really a programing question, so next time, post it to Ask Different.
