I suspect that this might have been a transient Windows XP problem as I got other error messages about other Windows applications failing due to lack of resources, etc. during the time that Prime95 was writing its error messages to the Prime95 window.
I have had a similar problem with Linux. See the message logs below:

Code:
[Mon Sep 19 14:59:29 2005]
Iteration 3992786 / 15025037
[Mon Sep 19 15:04:36 2005]
Error reading intermediate file: pF025037
Renaming intermediate file qF025037 to pF025037.
Error reading intermediate file: pF025037
And then it restarts the exponent from scratch.

It happened both on my work machine (AMD Athlon XP 2000+ with 512 MB ram, running Gentoo Linux x86) and my home machine (AMD Athlon 64 3800+ with 1 GB ram, running Gentoo Linux Amd64). Prime version was 24.13 and 24.14, I think.
