Keep getting 'se_illegal' error message in eclipse. What does it mean?

I'm trying to familiarize myself with the eclipse software for my MPC5643L board and have been tinkering with some example code that comes with the IDE. In particular I'm trying to check this ADC code, but it keeps breaking part way through the run operation and the Disassembly displays an 'se_illegal' code, but I can't seem to find any info to what this may indicate. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

se_illegal is instruction mnemonic for istruction opcode '0x0000'

In other words, if you disassemble cleared memory, you will see it full of illegal instructions.

Thank you for the response David, this helps some.

My next question is how do I prevent it from interrupting run? Also, if its receiving illegal opcodes, does that mean that this example code is not compatible with this specific board?
