I'm aware of a number of people who are successfully using  
disconnected mode. Whilst it is not without some rough edges, it is  
certainly stable enough for day to day use. I have certainly seen no  
reports of the corruption problems you are seeing.

I'm away at the moment, and so can't investigate your problem further.  
 From the information you provide it looks like the replay to the  
server is silently failing, and so you're left with the locally  
written data in the cache, but the servers metadata. Do you have valid  
tokens when you make the reconnection call?

Of course, 1.5.75 is a development release, and there has been a lot  
of churn there. It is entirely possible that someone has broken the  
disconnected replay code since it was last tested.
