What does MetaDataCache "not all cwpairs were found" mean?

Anyone familiar with the following message? I found this in search.log.

WARN MetaDataCache - not all cwpairs were found, wanted=1, found=0 dir=/opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/_internaldb/db/db_1276153996_1275879600_255 prefix=host::

It just a warning for a corner case that splunk isnt able to handle currently, a warning about MetaData files that have only one line in them. Aparently it doesnt get populated as it should and splunk is not able to handle that file.

The dev's are trying to get it fixed, but in the meantime there isnt anything to worry about because it causes no harm.
