I would say that I have not seen this problem for several versions - and 
even then, it may have been my fault, and I wonder if your problem lies 
elsewhere.

You don't say which operating system you use, but one way to get corrupt 
files is if the write to disk never completes - say because a PC 
(without battery backup) is switched off rather than closed down, or if 
a removable storage medium is unplugged before the write process is 
complete - or, obviously, if you have a damaged disk.


Sometimes the front end seems to get hung while performing dynamic 
operations, and I can imagine that saving your work in such a situation 
might cause problems.

Do you have a specific scenario that provokes this problem - if you do, 
you might want to share the details here, and also inform Wolfram support.
