You are probably hitting bug CSCsi59317.

And upgrade to 7.2.4 will probably get you passed it.

I hope it helps.

Briefly, here it is

Packet-tracer fails to trace after about 800 packet traces. I ran a script which will execute packet-tracer command continuously. It is observed that after about 800 traces following error is seen.

asa(config)# packet-tracer input inside tcp 1800 21

asa(config)# : NP failed tracing packet

asa(config)# sh ver

Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 8.0(1)16

Device Manager Version 5.2(2)

It happens also for 7.2.2.

Are you in multi-context ASA? If you are there is one more defect for packet tracer.
