The string "oflod complaint from" means that the flooding peer
has a complaint.'s logs should have a corresponding
message that says something about an "iflod complaint to tcob1..." 

Every report of checksums includes a timestamp.  Dccd and dbclean
watch for timestamps more than 4 hours in the future, because many
things in the DCC system depend on knowing when checksums were seen.

Judging from what `cdcc "; stats"` says,
is almost exactly 4 hours in the past.
