Incompatible magic value error

Hi All,

I am having an unusual problem with Eclipse. When I try to start my Tomcat Server, i get the error below in my console window:

I then go to Project -> Clean and then try again and it goes away. This is happening on and off intermittently and with different files all the time - so it is not with one particular class file.
I am using Eclipse 3.3 and Jdk 1.6 - has anyone come across this before? I have googled this error too and there is no meaningful solution which I can relate to.

Any ideas/help will be much appreciated in getting to the root of this problem. As I am able to temporarily get rid of it by rebuilding my project however it keeps reappearing several times a day.

I agree. Here's the link:
