Error: COM Object Separated from Underlying RCW

I recently created a new Telecom file geodatabase and ArcMap document following the instructions provided with the template.  The instructions are very helpful and I was able to complete all of the steps without any errors.  I even did the editing tests at the end of Fiber Tools Enterprise GDB Setup.pdf and didn't have any problems.  When I now try to edit our new geodatabase, an error appears that says, in part:

Error: System.Runtime.InteropServices.InvalidComObjectException: COM object that has been separated from its underlying RCW cannot be used.


If I click OK to close the window, it seems like I will be able to edit.  I can add features (well, at least I can add a pole) but the error also appears when I save edits.  I don't want to get too far into adding our features if there is an underlying problem with the database or mxd.
