Description (partial)

After setting cli-inactivity-timeout to a non-default value in the authentication config, mainApp produces the following error in the main.log (seen from show tech or Error Event Subscription):

 Syslog/F errSystemError threadStart catch(STL logic error) basic_string::_S_construct NULL not valid

Setting cli-inactivity-timeout in authentication config to any non-zero value will cause this error to occur.  So far, no negative functional side-effects have been observed.  Each time the IPS device is rebooted or the CIDS apps are restarted, this error will occur.
