These are very serious. They mean that your Tor server is overloaded
and can't keep up with the clients trying to use it. I've just changed
the log message to be more helpful:

"Your computer is too slow to handle this many circuit creation
 requests! Please consider using the MaxAdvertisedBandwidth config
 option or choosing a more restricted exit policy."

Does that help? My best guess is either that you're running on a 20mhz
processor, or you set your exit policy to accept *:*, or both.
