The extensions Spatial Movement Analysis (SpatialMovement.avx) and Animal Movement Analysis (Movement.avx), distributed by the USGS-Alaska Biological Science Center, use a variable called ellipse. ArcView 3.1 has an Avenue class for ellipse that was not available in ArcView 3.0a. This conflict causes the error messages.

Solution or Workaround

Open the project in ArcView 3.0a and uncheck the Spatial Movement Analysis and/or Animal Movement Analysis extensions. Save the project. You will no longer receive these error messages in ArcView 3.1.
