Put the \end{document} line right before the suspicious

If you do not know which frame is causing the error (it seems the one that 
includes or ends on line 83), move \end{document} right after the 1st 
frame, then 2nd, etc. I.e., move ahead \end{document} frame-by-frame until 
you find the guilty frame. Then try to see what is in it, in a similar 
reductionist mode. Or if you can't see what is wrong in it, perhaps 
someone on the list can say more.
