How do sparse bundles get corrupted and can they be fixed?

I am warming up to Mac OS X sparse disk image bundles: This is a virtual file system stored as a collection of small (up to 8MB) files in a folder. This way, you can have encrypted HFS+ volumes stored on FAT-formatted USB drives, or SMB network shares. And because the data is broken up into 8MB chunks, incremental backups work very well by just copying the updated fragments. No problem for rsync or Time Machine, even for encrypted data.
