Description Pacho Ramos 2015-09-07 11:16:15 EDT
This is really an upstream bug but it looks like upstream is a bit inactive and, then, it's unresolved still.

I am getting lots of messages like:
avahi-daemon[401]: Invalid response packet from host

People in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/avahi/+bug/1342400 wonder if maybe this is caused by some new Windows 10 or latest Mac OS X computers running around, but looks like they still couldn't find a real fix for this :S

This also causes systemd journal to grow a lot with this messages and to consume a bit more to catch all of them

I am not sure if you would know about how to solve this without needing to wait for upstream to fix it 

Thanks a lot
