Has anybody out there come across this problem before? This seems to be system wide on my computer -- all Java programs are affected by this.
Whenever I reboot, the problem seems to go away temporarily. I realize that this is something system-dependant (it also seems to affect my ANT scripts...) and not Java dependant, but I was wondering if anybody could give any suggestions on what exactly should be done about this.

It seems to occur when attempting to get the cononical path for a file. This particular instance was from attempting to start a BEA Weblogic instance. I've gotten the error also when attempting to access a HSQL database. Our code versioning system, Accurev, can't load its PLAF and reverts to the standard Metal theme. My ANT script fails when creating a directory.
However, all of my DOS functions are fine. I can create files, make directories, and generally access everything normally. This seems to be affecting only my Java-based applications.
Have you performed an error check on your hard drive?
It's a long shot I know, but if there was some error in one of the TOCs, causing an infinite loop (or a jump to a non existant file/directory) then you might get such an error. Such an error might not manifest in Microsoft Windows Explorer / DOS prompt if the program in use picked up that the TOC was in error and decided to use the other TOC (The JVM might not have the option of using the other TOC).
As you can see, there are many if's and maybes in that last paragraph. However it won't cost anything to try running an error check (except time).
PS. If I should be using the acronym FAT instead of TOC (or some other acronym) then I appologise for any confusion.
