I moved this file to another directory since it was causing issues.

file temp
Quote:

temp: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Sun May 9 10:38:22 2010
strings temp
cannot post output here since its pretty big file

well posting gzip data is not useful. Looks irrelevant, delete it, and don't blame us if it was important. It's nothing standard in Linux, that's for sure.
