    It sounds like you are actually out of available access-list entries.  If you do have a huge amount of acls, you would need to simplify these by doing some cleanup.  The quickest way to cleanup and save acl numbers - and make for easier managment, is to use object-groups.

    How many contexts are you running?  What are the resource-limitations?  Does all contexts need that many?

    Might be you can just increase the allowed amount for this particular context..
