Could not insert a backup or restore history/detail record on msdb.dbo

I get this error message when I do a backup to tape. Prior to the backup I clear the translog which is full.

Could not insert a backup or restore history/detail record in msdb.dbo sysbackuphistory or sysrestorehistory
This may indicate a problem with msdb.dbo. Dump / Load was still successful (Message 3009)

How I can solve this problem? Thanks.

Have you tried querying on sysbackuphistory?
This keeps a record of all backups. If you cannot select entries from this table in msdb, is it because it says table does not exist (in which case, does the table exist with a different owner to dbo - check in sysobjects for msdb).
Could your msdb database be full?
You may need to clear down old history records.
In Enterprise Manager, in Manage Scheduled Tasks, look at Task Engine Options to see if you have a limit on Task History Log.
If there is no limit, this could explain why database has filled up (if it has).
