In the process of debugging it, I found that one pattern that would periodically mess me (and the SD card) up was to reset the system (usually in order to load a new version of the code) without having first unmounted the device or otherwise flushing the file system.  Remember that the block device driver caches, so if the cache doesn't get flushed you can end up with partially written blocks, or an inconsistent set of blocks, on the SD card.

Thanks for the heads up. Currently I am only focusing on the reading 
part, as I can't get the card mounted yet, but will keep the cache in mind.
