Getting 'Duplicate PUBLIC name V_EMPTY in use module common UI' error

Can you tell me what this means: "Duplicate PUBLIC name V_EMPTY in use module common UI"? The message pops up when opening mail in Lotus Notes R5. Thanks!
It is usually one of a few things. The first one is if you tried to upgrade the mail file from R4.6 and the design didn't take properly. You can try to refresh/replace the design with the R5 mail template to see if it fixes it. Another possibility is that this is a message or calendar invitation from someone who either has you in their personal address book, or you have them in your personal address book. Both cases have been known to cause this error. Finally, perhaps this is a R5 mail file that you are trying to access with a 4.x client?
