Ignore it.

Not at the moment, no.

Nothing's corrupted. It's probably because the machine was powered off or 
rebooted while it was busy garbage-collecting. As it writes out new 
replacement nodes before the old ones are marked obsolete, if you interrupt 
it, it means that the original node will have remained intact on the flash 
-- only the new node which was _going_ to replace it is broken, and that's 
part of what the CRC check is there for.

It'll go away in time when the block in which the offending node resides is 
garbage collected.
