This is a message form Exiv2 library with parse makernotes from Exif metadata. 
Some makernote tags size do not respect the Exif limitation of 4090 bytes. 
This is why Exiv2 please users by this way.

Note : i suspect than this CR2 tag is a preview image. There is a file in 
Exiv2 bugzilla to fix this warning to add a new feature to extract preview 
like ExifTools do.
