Message is there 10 times with ~60seconds between each of these 10 pieces.
No such messages in the log.
I have tried to check this on 5.4.1 and besides other errors I have not seen this one, but not saying my reproducer was 100% same.

Making bugzilla public.
Fixed in Spacewalk master, 1ccd5bcffce9f43d1fce0a8d00878f25af660dac.
Also two similar changes in d3615b7487e167ef9e6e17a242b1a6cbab6e5dbf.
I believe that this issue is RHEL 5 specific (due to the version of Class::MakeMaker we have there). When trying to determine whether this is a regression, please make sure you are doing it on the same RHEL version where this problem was observed, and also use the same version for verification.
Of course, also verifying that on RHEL 6 the problem is not present with both the original and the fixed package would be good.
This issue is resolved with the release of RHN Satellite 5.5.
As of September 20th 2012, RHN Satellite 5.5 has been generally available.
Release Notes and other 5.5 documentation can be found here:
The associated Errata for the 5.5 release are:
5.5 Satellite GA Errata
5.5 Upgrade Errata
