I had this happen a while ago to me as well. IIRC, I received kind of empty
blocks (i.e. the filesize of the attached buff-in.rc5 being significantly
smaller than usual). I then requested a new workload from the fetch
server and everything was fine. I guess this was a glitch either in the
server sending blocks or somewhere along the way via email.
