mod_jk is typically discussed on the Tomcat users list, because it is 
developped as part of the Tomcat project.

I have never seen this message and quickly checked the code for mod_jk 
version 1.2.18 to 1.2.31 and it doesn't seem to be there. There is some 
evidence, that you are not actually using mod_jk but mod_jk2. The source 
code of mod_jk2 contains similar log messages. mod_jk2 has been 
abandoned many years ago. The older mod_jk has improved a lot and was 
decided to remain as the actively maintained module. You should switch 
from mod_jk2 to mod_jk. Unfortunately the configuration is not compatible.

Grab version 1.2.31 of mod_jk and have a look at the example 
configuration contained in the source download of mod_jk 1.2.31.
