Since upgrading to Edgy logcheck has been informing me that between 7
and 8 am each day there has been activity from Canonical of the form:

Mar  3 07:35:02 infinity kernel: [738616.529708] Inbound IN=eth0 OUT=
MAC=xxxxxxx SRC= DST= LEN=44 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x80
TTL=60 ID=4045 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=80 DPT=34813 WINDOW=64240 RES=0x00 ACK

inetnum: -
netname:        CANONICAL-CORE
descr:          Canonical Ltd

Can anyone tell me what has changed and, indeed, what this represents?
It's not that I don't trust Canonical, but do I like to understand what
happens on my machine.
