Workflow: Run #1: Error; Run #2: Success.

I have an issue that has been repeating for some time now.

In quite a few workflows, I'm finding a behavior where the FIRST time I run it, it will error and tell me something didn't match the right type of content for a particular column / space. However - if I re-run it - the same workflow on the same item without changing anything, it runs successfully.

I don't even know where to start troubleshooting this one.

Thanks for any help!

Re: Workflow: Run #1: Error; Run #2: Success.

from my experience, this occasionally happen when lookup column is updated and the ID value being set is looked up by some other/display value.

frequency of such error increase in case of heavier load on SP.

but I do not have any exact proof this the reason or this the only reason.
