It's hard to know without more information, but this looks like the  
TeX compilation is sometimes terminating prematurely, and the aux file  
or something similar is getting messed up. It's a good idea to enter  
"x" or "q" when you hit a compilation error and don't want to continue  
the typesetting run to avoid these sorts of problems.
