Do I need to worry about "tail: unrecognized file system type 0xbeefdead"?

I'm trying to follow a regular text file with "tail -f -n 50 filename. I get the information from the file just fine except I always get this error message. It happens on every file. The '0xbeefdead' worries me--it looks like a hacker tag.
