I see LOTS of posts about this issue when I do a Google search, but not a single one here in the forums, which seems strange.

Why do I get these messages all the time in Console?

All the Google threads say it's related to a faulty Time Machine drive or some kind of TM error.
AFAIK, I'm not having any trouble with TM, and the drive itself it just fine. I thought maybe it was due to my TM drive not being connected most of the time, so Path Finder couldn't find it. However, I have TM connected today and I'm still seeing these messages in Console.

    I have lots of these too. My config seems similar to yours with regards to TM backups. Still, it'd be nice to know what is causing this.

    I've uncertain what would be causing this, I've added it to our bug tracker.
