not a floating number , gptn complains...

Hello group,

I have a list that I import using

 list1 = Import["list1.txt", "List"]

The text file just has numbers at own lines without any pucntuation
marks.  importing liek above forms a list.

I wanted to then plot using Listplot and look at varuous stats such as
variance std dev, mean, cv. etc etc.

It works fine for some, except others I'm getting the following

Graphics::gptn: Coordinate 6.0562273076786985*^-6 in {174, \
6.0562273076786985*^-6} is not a floating-point number.

Graphics::gptn: Coordinate 2.863757626397791*^-6 in {209, \
2.863757626397791*^-6} is not a floating-point number.

Graphics::gptn: Coordinate 7.261053272010106*^-6 in {351, \
7.261053272010106*^-6} is not a floating-point number.

the lists are generated from evaluating NDSolve interpolating function
at a time point. solve routien is repoeated over 5000 random values of
a given parameters.

Exact same method worked just fine last night. now it's seems to
giving errors.

what's going on here ?

any thoughts will be thoroughly appreciated.
