Can anyone explain this? It looks like I can't delete a given file. This file has been causing weird errors with just about everything, including tar, rm, ls -l, etc. It resides on a vinum RAID-5 array, which is the only strange thing I can think of about it.

That looks like a recovery file from the pico editor.
It's unlikely, but possible that your system crashed during a pico editing session and left this file behind with a broken file descriptor. If such is the case, fsck might be able to fix it. Try unmounting the filesystem (or booting into single user mode if you must) and running 'fsck -f'. Once it's finished and you've rebooted the system, see if you can then delete the file.
