This is a message from inetd complaining that demand for the http-gw
service is exceeding a preset threshold (40 spawns per minute,
You can increase this threshold by editing the inetd.conf file,
locating the line with the http-gw entry, and changing the "nowait"
field to something like "nowait.120" (to allow 120 spawns per minute.)
Make sure to send signal 1 to inetd after you've made these changes.
