That normally means the metadata that we render when logged in was not 
found by Neos.
Check prototype(TYPO3.Neos:Page).neosBackendDocumentNodeData

In the rendered html you can find this metadata at the top (if the page 
works correctly in the backend) just after the opening body tag. So 
first see if the metadata is not appearing on the pages that give the 
error and then you could try to find why that happens.

It is probabably an issue with your TypoScript. As this is (pretty 
certainly) no error in the nodes itself but in the TypoScript there is 
no reset. You could use the default demo site TS to render your nodes 
and see if the same happens.
