Is this simply an error message saying that what you see may not be what actually happened?

I once had a replay that did this: I thought it was from being over 20 minutes long. What happened though, was in the replay I started to send wingdom units in front of my ghost, instead of the opposite. This result in the replay I lost a lot of units, verses what actually granted me the win in the actual game: Killing his units using the ghost for shield from giants, etc. If you continue to watch the replay I'm sure you'll eventually see big differences like this.

Exactly.
As to what causes this, it's being looked into to.

I've noticed that over time when watching 1 out of sync replay the game actually started lagging more and skipping parts a bit.
