A GATK RUNTIME ERROR, Invalid alignment found, alignmentStart > alignemntEnd

Hi, I was in the second step of Genome STRiP, to discover SV. It seems that all "partition" jobs worked fine, except one. The error message looks like this:

ERROR 00:12:01,906 FunctionEdge - Contents of /u/flashscratch/h/hjzhou/biploar_del_discovery_out/deletions100k/logs/SVDiscovery-203.out:

I am very new to Genome STRiP and GATK. Any clue or advice would be helpful.
