corruption in the page. This error is showing that this problem has

>From observation, when we've had this problem, in some cases the page
header appears to have been corrupted and in other cases there's evident
corruption elsewhere in the page. In one case, it appears a copy of a page
header from some other page had been written at the 8k point.
