It's not just possible, it's almost certain.  I strongly suggest running
the contrib/check_cvs script to look for other corrupted files in your
repository.  Using some kind of network filesystem to access your
repository (NFS, Samba, etc.) is the most common cause of corruption,
but hardware errors are also a distinct possibility, especially if
you're using cheap PC hardware.  Repairing the damage will be difficult,
if not impossible; I hope you have good backups.
