PacketFilter::stats_collection_interval is 5 mins by default. You're seeing it reported every 5 minutes because that's the reporting interval. :)
If you look into the percentage of traffic you're seeing reported as lost, it's actually 0.005% which isn't really that bad. Granted, it doesn't explain *why* you had a few packets reported as lost but in the grand scheme of things it's really not that bad.
