it seems that u are running the bcsp protocol. the error occures, when a
message has been resent to many times (depends on #define BCSP_RTX_MAX
the reason why the message has been resent to often is an open question:
has the link disconnected?
i found this problem quite often (see my mail "bscp: sequence-ack dead
loop"). it has to do with ack or seq packets getting out of order (while
the link on link layer still exists). this will lock the bcsp-protocol
an cause the packets to be resent (between the UART I/O and the BTCore)
al the time....
