It is highly unlikely you are running mpiBLAST without knowing it.  What 
does your command line look like?  This looks like it is a translation 
bug in the lower reaches of the blast code.  mpiBLAST hits those code 
sections, so it sees the bug more often than not.  The notes indicate 
that it is related to using one of the -m options (for output 
translation).  What does the rest of your command line look like?

Hmm.  Does it impact the output data you need (actual alignment 
information), or are you after parameters and computational "side 
effects" (bit scores, E-values,...)
