Periodic Master Page File Not Found Error

  Asked By: Noemi    Date: Jul 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 8874

I have a custom master page - nothing too sophisticated, just some HTML layout
changes - deployed as a feature on the SharePoint farm.

The sites where the master page is used are accessed globally. Periodically,
certain users in certain locations will receive a File Not Found error message
in SharePoint when going to the home page of a site that uses the master page.

The SharePoint log files in the 12 hive receive the following error message at
the same time that the File Not Found occurs:
Cannot get ghost document:
Unknown SPRequest error occurred. For more information:

We have not yet nailed down a pattern for when this occurs. Certain users will
be able to click around on the site for a while, but eventually encounter the
error message. Other users seem to never encounter it.

Has anyone seen this before, and do you have a suggestion on how to overcome it?
