The error message may be misleading. You may see this warning, when your Mac is running out of RAM. For example, when you have too many open applications that are RAM hogs, like Safari, iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, iTunes. Or when one of the applications you are running has a memory leak. Do you see any error messages in the Console window?
I'd recommend to reboot your Mac, before starting to work on your project - that will free any memory, that other applications may have been leaking; also close any application that you do not really need, while working on a music project.
How much RAM do you have, btw.? And how full is your harddrive? If this is running out of space, you may see similar warnings.

Thanks Leonie. I'll reboot and try again. I did have a few other applications open. I've been working with GB on my MacBook 2GHz with 4GB RAM; there's 32GB available on the harddrive.

The holidays delayed my return to this project, but tonight I got back to it.
I closed all applications, rebooted the computer, opened GB and began working on this audio file again (it's just one track). After just a few mintues, the same problem occurred again.
I brought the track to my MacMini and processed it in GB there, and it went smoothly witih no appearance of the problem that occurred with the laptop.
