Actually it could be something so simple as leaving the file open for
reading on a network drive.  The sharing semantics change.

For some real fun try mapping a file to memory and then reading from
a (the same) file handle to the same file, you get different data.
Even destroying the memory map and re-mapping still gives you
different data.

How do you want to break your data store today...
(sorry, I'll step off my soapbox now).
