This means your serial link isn't working. 0.4.7b should detect this
broken link and complain, at least if it's properly configured.
In fact, there should be several such messages in your logs, as at least
two different pieces of code note the problem in different ways.
If you would send your configuration files, and the logs from startup to
each machine detecting the other is down, then the problem might become
a little clearer.
