I have two slaves being updated each with two views all from one
master.

Invariably each slave tries to send an update to the other slave
(which gets refused and logged), and each slave even attempts to
send updates to ITSELF (which gets refused and logged).

I'm not sure if this is normal and I'm just anal about seeing the
"refused" log file messages, or if I can tell the two slaves to quit
trying to do any updates to themselves or each other.

advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim
