Perhaps what's happening is that rc564 is segfault'ing almost right away.  After
you run a command (in this case, tail), the shell sees that it's dead and prints
the message telling you what happened.  Try any other command and my guess is
that you'll get the same message.

This doesn't fix your underlying problem which is rc564 crashing.
