WTF...? COMPROMISED?!?

A message just popped up stating:

"The wireless network appears to have been compromised and will be disabled for about a minute."

The trigger? Connecting to my PC over the local LAN, secured by WPA. Using a cheap TrendNET router, but still.. WPA should be secure enough. I thought.

[append]
Looks ok. Damned odd message though - I was unable to get a screenshot - the screenshot commands didn't work. However, the message can be found in the file "Localizable.strings" in the
"ClientController.bundle/Contents/Resources/English.lproj" folder under the
"/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/A/Resources" folder:
"wpaIsFailureMIC" = "The wireless network appears to have been compromised and will be disabled for about a minute.";
"wpaIsReplayAttack" = "The wireless network appears to have been compromised and will be disabled for about a minute.";

A moderator of the macosxhints forum stated, "This happens when a mounted drive disappears. E.g., the remote machine is rebooted."

The latter is possible, as the reason...

And... I think I might have damaged my hard drive earlier when my iBook slipped off the PC... Whoops.
