Dear Justin,

Thank you very much from your response.

OK, but is it important? Because these warnings are appeared some where, not for all of calculations. For example, these are appeared for gyrate.xvg and not for moment.xvg!

Thank you again from your help and excuse me from my delay for thank from you.

Best Regards

It likely means the data are poorly converged.  Refer to the paper cited in g_analyze -h regarding the error calculation for details and a complete description of the error estimate method.
