I think it is due to ISOLATION levels that you are executing the query.

You say, "SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL COMMITTED"

and then execute the query.

See the following link for more details.

Try running DBCC CHECKTABLE('mtTBL')

From what I've read and seen, this message is one of the ones possible when you are trying to add/remove records from a table with a corrupt clustered index.

If so DBCC CHECKDB wont report the error. I'm not sure checktable will or not.
To fix it, you would need to drop and re create the clustered index. Or run
CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX...WITH DROP_EXISTING for your table. This will be slow with that many records, but I dont know you have a choice.

Also, you may want to make sure you're running the most current SP. I dont know of this happening on the most recent SP.

Good luck!
