RE: ghost systems

A few months back we had an AWS instance that experienced some hardware failure, was given the commands to shut down, and then restarted so aws brought it up on different hardware. But the old zombie instance kept running for a couple weeks with us having no way to access it, but it continued to send notices and warnings that took a while to track down as there was no trace of them on the supposed source machine.
