java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Comparison method violates its general contract!

I am running mutect using the following command-line:

java -jar /data/CCRBioinfo/biowulf/local/muTect-1.1.4.jar -T MuTect \
--dbsnp /data/CCRBioinfo/public/GATK/bundle/2.3/hg19/dbsnp_137.hg19.vcf \
-R /data/CCRBioinfo/public/GATK/bundle/2.3/hg19/ucsc.hg19.fasta \
-I:normal SRR617325.bam -I:tumor SRR351155.bam --vcf out.vcf

I am getting the following error:

INFO  07:39:02,500 MuTect - [MUTECTOR] Processed 131030425 reads in 1026 ms
Error processing chr1:724167
