uh.. sorry! I've seen that "aspell" knows it so I thought that it has the
same meaning as in my language(romanian).

It means: some reason that stays in the way of an action

To be more clear:

       n 1: something immaterial that interferes with or delays action
            or progress [syn: {hindrance}, {deterrent}, {handicap}]
       2: anything that makes progress difficult [syn: {obstruction},
