Intermittent error - 420 query unterminated

I have this intermittent problem where LabView 8.5 is waiting for the E4417A (firmware A2.05.00) to return a status bit.  On the PM there is a query unterminated error. 
These are the commands sent to the PM.

*CLS
SYST:PRES
*CLS
STB?

The following is in a loop to read multiple frequencies
*CLS
SEN2:FREQ:CW %fHz
INIT2:IMM
FETC2?
*CLS
STB?     <-- This is where it gets hung up.

This code has been running for years and works with other power meters.  I'm not sure there is something wrong with this particular power meter or if we are now seeing a bug in the code.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
