Any ideas what this means?

These are 1100s in light-weight mode, managed by 5500WLC or WiSMs running 7.0.116  Message appears sporadically, every few weeks, sometimes once in a day, sometimes in bursts, typically from a single AP (out of a flock of ~200 campus-wide), the APs involved tend to live within a particular cluster of buildings.

You might as well open a TAC case on this unless one ot the Cisco guy's here can lookup that message.  That message is not in the guide for that code you show:

Are the affected AP heavily loaded with voice and data clients.

Matching Bud ID - CSCtc82074

However the bug is fixed on 7.0.98.0 and it stops AP from crashing after this error message.

Printing error msg and traceback is ok but the AP shouldn't crash.

Stuart - did you ever hear from TAC or anyone about this message? I'm getting these messages on a few APs.

No, we haven't chased that down -- that ball rolled into a crack somewhere and got dropped.
