This occurs most frequently when I confirm changes to the "Span Columns" setting in the paragraph style configuration menu.
My applications are all up-to-date.

You say you're up to date, but let's verify you are running version 8.0.1.
Is there anything in event viewer?
Span/split columns can be problematic. I think, maybe, I remember a bug that was related to a specific number of columns in the frame. Do all the frames have a particular column count?
I've found that making changes to Span Columns is problematic in long documents - if changes in the paragraph style cause reflow, especially overset text at the end of a long doc, it's as if it's too much for ID to handle. One potential workaround is:
1) Copy a small bit of text set in the problem style to a fresh document
2) Make the changes you want
3) Save & close the new doc
4) Import the style from that new doc from no. 3 above into your long doc
It works, sometimes.
(What works better is not using Span/Split columns - it'd be a great tool if it was reliable, but it's simply not reliable.)
Thanks for your replies.

All of my frames have 2 columns, and the error only occurs when switching from span, to single. This is the log from the Event Viewer, although it doesn't provide much to work with:

Unfortunately the import style trick didn't work, but it was a good idea. Like you suggested, I will be staying away from the span options from now on.
I ended up deleting all of the paragraph styles to get things moving again.
