The real answer here would probably be to stop restarting interchange
from cron every 10 minutes, I can't think of any reason that you would
need to restart it so often, however if you really want to do that, you
can add '> /dev/null 2>&1' to the end of your crontab line, and the errors
will not get emailed to you.
