I remeber Jagex mentioning these popping up massively after Bot Nuke Day, still getting them about 3 times a day.. Is this still a Jagex/Runescape issue they've not fixed, or is this a Swiftkit issue?

It's a runescape error. Happens every 6~ hours of not refreshing RS. Dunno why it happens but it does so.

Happens to me aswell, not sure if it happens when using other clients since I use swiftkit.
Think its meant to stop bots or something (Obviously doesn't work too well :# )

This. I think it's to make sure the botter must reload the client, and I think they'll start to notice a pattern. Not quite sure, because imo Jagex's attempt to ruin Botters always feels like a marketing ploy rather then reality now.

Every time you load RuneScape, you use a slightly modified client and this is why you need client tokens. The client tokens are made so they time out and can't be reused. Why? Every time the RS client updates(new token), you are forced to update your botting client as the data the server sends you is scrambled in a different way so a bot is unable to read it. Well, that was how it was supposed to work until the bots beat the system. Why it's not removed? The old bots may have beaten it but it is still a huge barrier on the way of developing new bots from scratch.

In fact, the client tokens are one of the most effective deterrents against botting we have at the moment

~ A Post from Mod Chris E in the QA RSO Forums. It's to combat bots. After 6 hours, some bots log out and their client breaks. Only way around is to refresh the client and A LOT of bots can't do this... yet.
