mostly i hapened with me too ... but in the case of dual boot ... with
windows and ubuntu... and when i use fat from ubuntu then at startup there
is a forced dosfsck ,,, and every time i do it it checks the disk... i dont
know how to stop it but its there ... but never corrupted my file uptill now

may be that is the issue with the filesystem ... so do a complete fsck
either you have done it or not and try opening that file ... if the file is
on vfat ... try moving it into ext file system and then try again ... hope
it works
