Taking a very quick look at the source along with reading the description

occures if a sscanf() fails when reading the above mentiond file.

Description: Incoming and Outgoing TCP/IP connections logger.
 tcpspy is an administrator's tool that logs information
 about incoming and outgoing TCP/IP connections. It's
 written in C and uses no libpcap functions, unlike tcpdump.
 Connections are selected for logging with rules, similarly
 to the filter expressions accepted by tcpdump. The
 following information is logged: username, local address
 and port, remote address and port, and, optionally, the
 executable filename.
 At present, only the IPv4 protocol is supported.

Are you using IPv6 and the parsing then fails possibly? Or something like

If you find the problem, please tell.
