Hi Thomas,

Similar errors have been reported before. See for instance

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2589
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3052
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3143
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3344

Unfortunately, no one has come up with an explanation yet.

It sounds like the database has been corrupted, so I'm afraid recovery
from backup is the only reliable way to do it.
