Comment #10 on issue 3660 by Files randomly get lost from a review request ("This is an empty file.")

It's deeply alarming that they'd "disappear" like that. Review Board is extremely heavily tested with GitHub (we use it every day ourselves, and monitor a large install with many GitHub users), and haven't come across this at all yet. Hmmmmm...

We only show "This is an empty file" if it's a newly-created file of 0 bytes. The "new file" state is computed at diff upload time and never modified, and the number of changes happens when we parse the uploaded file content and generate a diff view for it.

So I'm seriously leaning toward corruption somewhere.

What type of database are you using?

Are you using any sort of multi-server approach for your web server or database servers?

Any sort of special work you're doing against the database? Anything with how you do backups?
