I receive the message attempt to release an unlocked object when searching a pdf file.

We are using a unisys product called enterprise output manager. it interfaces with adobe acrobat and sends reports to adobe that converts them into pdf files for viewing over our intranet. The problem is that from time to time certain reports after being created as pdf files generate an error when you are in adobe viewing them and try to search on text that states "attempt to release an unlocked object". On adobe 6 the messge is no longer an error message but instead just returns the message "zero records found" even though that is incorrect. The really odd thing is that if you generate a new version of the report, the new one works. Sometimes though you have to create a new pdf file over and over and over again until one finally works. I searched via goggle and see other people have posted around the internet about getting the same error using adoboe but I could not find a solution anywhere.
