Issue with curvature based mesh

Hi.  Often when I use the curvature based mesh option, I get the error "Element 1 thickness is smaller than tolerance (1.E-30)".  Sometimes creating a courser mesh will solve the issue, but I'd rather not have to do that.  Also, in areas where I need to create local refinements for a successful mesh, a courser mesh is not an option.  What is the source of this error and how do I get around it?  I'm using SW 2011 SP05. 

 

Any help is appreciated!

 

Thanks
