I sincerely doubt Barry would see it, because I'd be willing to bet
dinner it's a bad block on the disk, and it's lodged in one of the
files (probably the .db file) attached to that list.
i'd do a surface test of that disk and see if it finds problems. I'd
give it 90% chance it will. This just screams "bad block!" at me.
