I'd start by running fsdump.py and identifying what transaction and
objects are affected by this problem.  fsdump will display transaction
metadata (like time) and oid & class for each object.

I agree that ZODB should not write the corrupt entries.  It's
possible, of course, that it didn't.  It's certainly possible for
bit-rot to strike a Data.fs, although it seems odd that the only
manifestation of a disk failure would be a mismatch between object
serialno and transaction id.

I might be able to help more by looking at the actual Data.fs.  Are
you in a position to share it?  (I can be discrete ;-).
