I'd say so too. In my case the cause seems to be clear - I'm running an
older version of 7-current for about 2 months (with frequent reboots)
and no sign of file corruption. (Newer versions are usually not able to
run at even /bin/sh on my system.) I'm able to pinpoint the exact patch
that causes these problems _for me_ - it's a VM patch (new physical
memory allocator) from June the 16th.
Unfortunately I can neither grant access to the machine for debugging nor
send in another board (I only have one) but I can provide debugging
information or test something...

By the way, I think it would be interesting to know if others do have
the problems even with older -current.
