Sometime I experience file corruption of .graphon/<user>.db, it look like something has been interrupted writing.
When this occurs the affected user is no more able to login via GOGlobal.

O.S.: hp-ux 11i V3
Processor: PA-Risc and Itanium
GOGlobal version: 2.2.12

Bruno,

This looks like the file wasn't completely written out. In my experience this usually means that the system lost power in the middle of writing the file (unlikely if this happens often) or the system is out of disc space (or you have exceeded a quota or something similar). I'm not aware of any other situations that would cause this.

Hope this helps,
Troy

Unfortunately this file is often written, and the problem rose also many time.
My problem is provide corruption recovery procedure guidelines for users, including root, could you help me?

May I suggest you to implement a more safety management of this critical file, such as don't overwrite the current file but move it in root.previous, in order to be able to automatically recover such a corruption, without require human actions.
