I did not know about the corruption (I did not know that LevelDB logs are 
human readable application logs), thanks for telling me. I did look at syslog 
and I did not find any traces of a disk failure.

Yes, it is. (It is an application-level test written as a basho_bench driver.)

I will look into it and report back.
