Well, that’s a mouthful, isn’t it?

I saw this in our production web site’s log and wondered how serious an issue it is.  Our site is ASP.NET MVC 3, using Entity Framework 4.1 for database connectivity.

I dug around and found the best explanations here:

It’s only appears once in the current log and not at all in the last archived log, so I’m not going to worry about it, yet.  But I thought other people might be interested in what it is, what causes it and what to do about it and I wanted to record the explanation sources in case it happens again and I need to do something about it.
