I don't have a problem with it being the last item either - it's just 
the persistence of the error line, even after the error has cleared.
I presume it's saved in a table in bucardo? My thinking was that it 
would be relatively straightforward to zero out the field as a
simple bucardo command, once you've seen it and taken whatever action is
