TXEXC [RetryErr] in syslog

I get the following message repeated -a lot- in /var/log/syslog:

Jul 25 20:29:54 jukebox kernel: wlan0: TXEXC - fid=0x01a3 - status=0x0001 ([RetryErr]) tx_control=000c Jul 25 20:29:54 jukebox kernel: retry_count=0 tx_rate=10 fc=0x0a08 (Data::0)
Jul 25 20:29:54 jukebox kernel: addr1=00:05:5d:da:4e:53 addr2=00:05:5d:ee:b0:52 addr3=00:05:5d:ee:b0:52

The link otherwise seems to be running fine. Now, I read in another message that this is at least semi-normal. The two computers, incidentally, are maybe 5 or 6 yards apart, hardly long distance. Anyhow, my main question is how to stop this logging... I've managed to generate quite a sizeable syslog file now!
