You ran into same bug as me

Bug Id : CSCdt07408
Headline Netflow not working on GEIP+ with 256meg DRAM
Product rsp4 Model
Component netflow-switch Duplicate of
Severity 2 Status M
Version Found 12.0(11)S Fixed-in Version 12.2(0.10)
Release Notes

Unable to run Netflow and DCEF on VIP or GEIP+ card with 256
meg DRAM.
There is no work around except not running Netflow and DCEF
on those cards.
details may vary but problem is exactly the same.
today I saw it solved in 12.0(15.5)S, in lab it doesn't create these
errors, whether dCEF and NetFlow work - I don't know

check also bug navigator, it says something about 12.0.6S
