"* BYE Killed" message: wondering if this is something to worry about

I noticed that one of my machines displayed the message

* BYE Killed

on the console and was wondering if this is something to worry about.  After some searching on the web all I could find was that this message is related to the UW-IMAP client.  Below I have the links to two sites that point to the same info.  If anyone has other important information regarding this, please share it.

Make sure your system has identd running. If you have port 113 blocked to ident, and you aren't responding to ident requests, you might have system connections hanging until timeout.

Try this

issue 'netstat -plutn' (no 's of course)

The output should look similar to this:

This is one possible problem. Let me know if this reveals anything.

Nothing caught my attention although I will take a look again.  
Do you think this could be the message from a rootkit?
