Help on Failed Global Contact Search

This may be a short/stupid question, or something way over my head, but can anyone help/explain the error message "Failed global contact search"?  This seems to come up quite a bit, and I have models with lots of no-pen surface contacts and it really gets old picking them manually.  I can't find any reasoning for the error, but thought it may have to do with my assembly having patterned parts (sometimes mirror features give my mesh heck, so thought it may be along the same lines).  So I did a copy assembly and dissolved the pattern, but same results.  There's no .out generated that migh give more details either.  Can anyone shed some light on this please?
