Hoping someone out there might have some advice

I am using grip with cdparanoia as my ripper and lame
as my encoder.

Periodically  I will get this error (pop up window
produced by grip) while ripping a cd

gtcd--sm-client-id 11189(long string of

No response to the SaveYourself command.
The program may be slow, stopped or broken.
You may wait for it to respond or remove it.

this usually happens at the end of ripping a cd,
though sometimes in the middle

from then on the ripping will slow down to a snail's
pace (x0.1 speed or slower) and I become unable to rip

The only way I have found to correct this is to
reinstall grip and gtcd (though I am sure there is a
simpler way), thought the problem inevitable comes
back with time.

Has anyone encountered this warning before??
can anyone help me interpret it???

I am running
