Nmap Strange Read Error (Anyone Seen this Before?)

Hello Everyone While Scanning some network targets the other day I ran across a Strange Read Error in Nmap I have 
searched online as to any clue as to what could be causing this but have been unsuccesful.Several Minutes into the scan 
of ports 0-65535 it freezes up and gives constantly prints a 

Strange read error from x.x.x.x (10049): No such file or directory

I Decided to break out my ethereal to try to get a better understanding of what was going on and did not see anything 
out of the ordinary no rst flags or anything that would indicate foul play from either side of the connection.However 
when I checked my Active connections there was no sign that the scan was still continuing it just stopped.Any help 
would be appreciated thx.
