Is your SICK configured for 0.5 degree mode? Gmapping cannot currently handle a laser that outputs a variable number of pings. See Ticket 4865 for details.

You can fix the problem by setting your SICK to 1 degree mode. It will then only output 181 readings per scan and not alternate between 181 and 180 pings per scan.
