This really looks like a filesystem error. If it appeared out of the blue , then get another disk ASAP.... When the discs failed on some of my machines , I got some errors more related to HD (like "drive not ready" , for example). If you're willing to risk , just do a reboot and fsck the partition. It'll probably fix the filesystem and , if the disk is OK , it will keep working for some time (maybe even years..)

The only machine were I saw something like this was under heavy stress and was overheating.. If we added a external fan to help airflow , it would work for weeks withouth problem... So , check this machine and see if it is overheating...
