From a Google search:

Possibly, a warning on large variable length return values.

Previous responses I've had on this list by the IBM guys indicate that
it appears the compiler has not been designed to accommodate these as
well as might be hoped. If you have many (like 100+) such statements in
a program, it is possible that it can eventually cause an automatic
storage overflow error, possibly triggered when some other normal but
unrelated exception has occurred
