I used to face this problem on MBP. Due to the following observations, I think 
this problem is related to memory consumption.

1. Never happens after a restart, if emacs is the first app to run.
2. Almost always happens if emacs is run when MBP is up for a long time with 
lot of other apps.
3. Killing most apps especially chrome and then starting emacs = success.

Since then, I have upgraded the RAM from 2 + 2 config to 8 + 2 and have never 
faced this issue so far.
