Im getting this message over and over again in my console:

27.06.12 18:05:31,541 mds: (Error) Server: mdsync launch failed: (ipc/send) invalid destination port
27.06.12 18:05:31,541 mds: (Error) Server: mdsync launch failed: (ipc/send) invalid destination port
27.06.12 18:05:31,541 mds: (Error) Server: mdsync launch failed: (ipc/send) invalid destination port
27.06.12 18:05:31,541 mds: (Error) Server: mdsync launch failed: (ipc/send) invalid destination port

I assume something is bad with mds/spotlight service's. But what exactly? Anybody got any ideas? I tried to re-enable indexing, unload/load md related jobs through launchctl, still getting that error message...

[UPDATE]

After an hour the message stopped - but oddly enough those errors stopped, now the console is spitting those. I cant't find any info about mdworker errors...

Do you have any actual problems using Spotlight or is it just this error you're seeing? – slhck Jun 27 '12 at 17:09
    
Not that i am aware off - it works. I mean i type something and it finds it the way it always did. My computer is howerver a lot of faster since i Purged all of that indexing files and reindexed turning backup drives and other unnecessary places. – PJJ Jun 27 '12 at 18:09
