Sorry to hear that.  Would be interested to know if the problem is 
related to an unpassed message handled in a frontScript.

In rare and obscure (hard to reproduce) ways, it's possible.  I may have 
seen it once or twice over the years, perhaps most recently (a couple 
years ago) with some field contents.

Moving one file format change to the next I've never seen an issue.  But 
the couple times I might have seem something related to format 
conversion differences ("might" because unconfirmed) it was when moving 
something into a new format from three or four format changes earlier.
