Are you aware of the marginnote package? Its manual says, in the very  
first paragraph, that the \marginpar command "creates a special kind  
of float", causing problems particularly with "regular" floats or  
footnotes, for example. I'm guessing these special floats are the ones  
referred to in the log. The marginnote package was written to solve  
some of float-related problems of \marginpar, however, the author (M.  
Kohm, of KoMa-Script fame) warns "there might be other  
problems" (which he doesn't specify). Still, might be worth a try?

Good luck,
