Error in AC simulation with mixer and spice model

Hi,
I am running into the an error (see below) while I am trying to simulate a spice model with a down-conversion mixer (AC, Linux). The subcircuit with the spice model of the amplifier runs fine without the mixer. No problem. As soon as I am adding a frequency conversion I get the error.

Any ideas. Please let me know. Thank's Wolfram
