Unknown error: "?" is modifying these items

I have a script that runs in the background every 20 minutes, and it got hung up yesterday with an error message that I've never seen before. Is anyone familiar with this error?


"?" is modifying these items. You cannot use these items until "?" is finished.


This error is similar to the normal error you get when someone's working in a record, but clearly not the exact same:

"name" is modifying this record. You cannot use this record until "name" is finished. (the usual error I am reminded me of)


The script started working again on its own, but now I'd just like to know if anyone has seen that error before and if there's a way to prevent it from getting stuck again.


Thanks in advance!
