How many processes do you have running? Is that pid one of yours? Does the message show up when you first call Acquire, or when you attempt to reacquire a lost device? Did you alt+tab away from the app (or did the debugger gain focus)? What device type? Are you running any other applications that may be polling input devices?

I think it happened because my program crashed once, and then I fixed it and ran it again and it said that. It only happened to me like once...It happened in the beginning of my program, so it happened when I first called acquire, and no I didn''t alt-tab...but I think I have good working re-acquisition code.
