Why does bolt connection fail when I include gravity in simulation

I'm new to the forum and cannot understand why my simulation fails when I include gravity. I have defined two bolt connections and a contact set between the face of the "L" shaped part and the rectangular section.

The simulation works just fine if I don't include gravity but when I include gravity I get the following error

Has anyone else run into this problem and been able to solve it?
