World Corruption Error

THe server is running in a blank world on my test machine right now. Why? Read below! Feel free to fuck around in this dummy map.

Unstable bukkit is causing dramatic world corruption errors. Working on a fix, may take some time, we'll be offline for a while. CHeck here for updates.

Since everyone deserves more info: Bukkit is having a problem where the cached chunk isn't getting written to the save, so it's reloading from the save, with the wrong coords, then writing that back. That's balls. So there's a utility to fix this, linked here: Fenixin which I am running...which on a world our size oculd take HOURS.

UPDATE: After like 32 hours, I got the following result:

############ Trying to fix wrong located chunks ############

4 fixed chunks of a total of 4 wrong located chunks

Then, I booted it up, logged in...and got this:

Right back where we started, broken chunks. I don't know what to do, elite base is all fucked. It's for sure the beta bukkit. I think what'll have to happen is when RB comes out, we'll have to run this again and re-try to fix it...until then I'll look at manually editing the region files to fix it since the coords ARE there, pulling from a backup from like Nov 5. I'm sorry this is happening, and there's no clean fix for it.

I'm gonna try one more thing...in case that backup # 1000 had the bad chunk errors already written, I'm gonna run this one more time with the oldest backup we have, see if it fixes it. Stay tuned...I figured how to multi-thread it so it'll go faster.

    Current spawn is sealed shut so if someone could open it?

    Another server I had joined before I went to when I heard we were running a blank map. Guess what? They had the same problem. They decided to pull up a backup as well… those hours of work D:

    it’s not a true revert…this program should just fix the broken areas. If needed we can do a real backup…but we’ll see.

    This may be Herobrine’s work. We(Pirate, Bouke) tried to fix it. But the chunks are still messed up.
