The Mac has a zillion error codes.  According to, this
one's definition is:
> -39   eofErr          End of file; no additional data in the format

Which just confirms what someone else posted.

Some file system error, it looks like (those range from -33
through -61).  Looking yours up on that oserrors page the next
time it happens *might* help you pin down what's happening in
your case.

Hard to argue if it works. Still, it'd make me nervous trusting
that the problem will only occur on updates, and never on
