ERRORL2 in task_list_methods:optimize_load_list

I have a series of QuickStep MD simulations, all for the same system, were 
some of the runs fail somewhere in the middle with the following error:

*** 14:11:19 ERRORL2 in task_list_methods:optimize_load_list processor 0 
*** :: err=-300 condition FAILED at line 968

It doesn't say much about what can be done, nor what triggers the error. 
There's a comment in the source code which indicates it could be an 
out-of-memory error, but it has a small number of atoms and running on 512 
processors, in conditions where I've never seen this error before.

How can I diagnose this? What can I try to avoid it, or understand better 
what triggers it?
