Bugs should be reported here. Please search before posting because this particular bug has been reported several times.
Have the host upgrade their BYOND version to the latest, it's a newer client sending invalid data to an older server.

woulf if he was hosting with the latest linux bulid?
In response to Darker Emerald (#3)
Have the players update then.
This message is not a bug, although there was a bug related to the cases where it appears, and that has been fixed in 455. Since the message is describing what can be a normal circumstance, 455 will also no longer report it.

For future reference, it's a good idea to look for matching bugs (including resolved ones) in the bug tracker before posting new report.

That's not the problem; older servers can handle newer clients. The problem is that the appearance IDs in question are being recycled between the time the client is told they exist and the time the client's request for their info reaches the server. The message is printed in those situations even though it's nothing important. The bigger problem is that the client is never told about the ID being recycled, so it waits on a response from the server that's never coming. Version 455 fixes these issues by having the server tell the client about the change, and the client will re-request the information the next time it sees that ID.
