Notice the "can" in "This can indicate a potential grabber failure."

Are you sure that it is failing? If you manually run mythfilldatabase, 
you're very likely to get that message the next time it's run 
automatically. I highly recommend logging (configure a log file for 
mythfilldatabase in setup) and letting it run for two or three days 
without your running it manually.
