Error Message on PIX 6.3(5)

I'm working on one of our lab 515 firewalls testing a config change that I'll be pushing out. I pulled the config off of the production box and pasted it into the lab. Now on the box I'm getting the following error message, which probably doesn't do anything except cause a slight annoyance. Has anyone else seen this and what can I do to fix it.

WARNING: unable to add route to OSPF RIB

Ive seen that error message a lot when an engineer overlooks their static statements.

since we cannot see your config, take a look at it yourself and see if there is a misconfiguration.

Well so far after working a bit more with this problem I see it happening even after only the most basic commands on a new config. Here's the basics of what I've done so far sans the public ip. This isn't really a big deal because so far the only system I'm getting this on is this lab box that I'm copying the configs of production boxes onto to verify future config changes.
