Not with the symptoms you have.

Two possibilities:

1. Has the datafile grown to a size that is problematic? I don't know
specifically about the versions of tar and gzip in AS 3, some are
limited to 2gb file size.

2. I wouldn't think this is very likely since it is only happening to
one datafile, but could it possibly be a memory problem?
