Most likely you have a buffer overrun problem somewhere in the inner function
(or something like that). It overwrites the current stack frame of your function
with irrelevant data, and destroys the return address in the process, which is
normally stored there among other things. The result is that the code "returns"
to some unpredictable location and can't figure out where it is it returned to.
This is what causes the error message.
