to me this looks like a bug in exactly the new feature that the warning 
is about, obviously it is new functionality and it has been overlooked 
that it can't be reconstructed from it's FullForm (or InputForm). If you 
do FullForm[intp], copy the result in a new cell and evaluate that you 
will find that this does not work and I think that is about what happens 
and fails within the Save/Get cycle...

For the moment I think the best you can do is to save the data and 
reconstruct the interpolating function after reloading the data.
