According to the code, it wants it to be
If this is the correct subnet (is it?), then we should probably make
the log entries clearer about this. Thanks for pointing it out.

The problem is that those log entries happen before the log file is
configured. This is on our list of stuff to deal with in 0.1.1.x, but
some of them are hard to get the order right for, since that warning
happens before you act on your config options, meaning before you've
opened the logs. Hm.

No, this is fine. With 0.1.0.x, when that notice happens, it immediately
goes to try to fetch another one; so unless it happens constantly for an
extended period of time, it's fine.
