Simple experimentation reveals that this message is logged once per 
ejabberdctl run. I suppose this is how epmd (the Erlang port mapping 
daemon) tells it's already running when the Erlang emulator started by 
the ejabberdctl script tries to run it.
So my guess is that these messages are harmless.
