It usually means the brake rotors are warped.

Actually machining rotors makes them more prone to warping. Because every time they are machined it makes them thinner reducing their ability to dissipate heat. In the shop I used to work at we routinely replaced rotors instead of machining, and we had very few come backs and/or disappointed customers.
