Unable to get viewstate information;formatting may not be correct

Path Finder

From time to time when moving an application from development to production we get the following view start error. "Unable to get viewstate information;formatting may not be correct" What is causing this issue? It does not seem that anything is wrong. If I rename and resave the search the issue goes away. Is there a better way to resolve this issue?
