Is this producing any problem in using the system, or are you just curious to make it go away?

Try delaying xbmc starting until network is ready, it is in the openelec settings addon.
I have so many addons I don't actually use that I couldn't tell you if it's causing problems.

URL error: Unable to connect to server Unable to connect to host

followed by

Error in artwork rotation
[Erno-2] Name or service not known

I put a 10 second delay and the errors still returned.

thanks for your help!
my google sleuthing skills came up with the solution:

Disabled XBMB3C

stopped receiving the error.
