We have never seen a report like this before, but we believe you if it
happens in version 6 and version 3 !

The message should only come from reading an input sequence from
invertebrate.protein.faa and that part should be the same in both cases.

Can you please send the invertebrate.protein.faa file to
emboss-bug at emboss.open-bio.org

You have aroused our curiosity :-)
