We're having several of these today. I can fix them - but to save work, please tell me the member for the profile. E.g. if the error message says:
then the member number is 01234567. Post that here, and I'll fix it.
If anyone else has a similar problem, please post your member number here. Or if you see someone else with this problem, please direct them to this thread. And moderators: please close the original thread. I'm not going to respond to each thread individually.
Within the next few days I should have something set up to find these and fix them automatically. It won't be an ongoing problem. But until then, if you need a single member profile or thread fixed, post it here.
Thanks for your patience. [ October 16, 2007: Message edited by: Jim Yingst ]

That's the good news, we believe it is related to some fairly significant (although invisible) changes being made to UBB. Just indexing and some code generation, but obviously it had some unforeseen side effects

Hopefully this issue is mostly resolved. Thanks to JOTI*, I have closed the unregistered feature.
No, it was something I did that had insufficient error checking. A program that had to update a bunch of files - apparently with the JDK on this file system, it's possible to write a file and close the FileOutputStream (in a finally block, of course) with no errors, yet not all the bytes have been written yet. Most files were written correctly of course, but a few were not; I've been restoring the remainder from backups taken the night before the damage occurred. I was able to automate most of the restoration (detecting damaged files and replacing them), but there are a few special cases left over.
