As long as you know what's causing it, it's safe to ignore --- it's not
harming anything except wasting a process launch each time. If you
hadn't known the cause then I'd be worried about whether some hostile
is portscanning your network ...

What you *should* be worrying about is that you are still running 7.4.5.
That's two years old and there are a big pile of known bugs in it,
some of which *will* eat your data.
