Sounds like a hard-drive or an NFS mounting problem.  Are the directories
mounted via NFS?  Is there currently a problem with NFS on the machines?
Has one of the partitions filled up with data so there is no more room on

files really could easily become corrupt as users attempt to add and delete
themselves to your lists.
