Hi Michael,
That error - "Could not complete growth" means that while individually growing and minimizing torsions, the DOCK algorithm reached a point where none of the partially grown conformers fit in the site any more. 
Could you run DOCK again with the verbose flag (-v)? This will provide details about the growth process during while growing each torsion.
If possible, please also attach all the files used so that we may reproduce the calculation and identify the problem.
