Crosscheck Error:ORA-19608 "is not a backup piece"

I have an Oracle database 9.2.0.6. This is backed up daily using RMAN script. I also have a scheduled job to clear off obsolete backups, basically a RMAN script with the following:
CROSSCHECK BACKUP;
CROSSCHECK ARCHIVELOG ALL;
REPORT NEED BACKUP;
DELETE FORCE NOPROMPT OBSOLETE;
LIST BACKUP SUMMARY
I have noticed that every couple of days this now fails giving me the following error:
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-03009: failure of crosscheck command on ORA_DISK_1 channel at 09/12/2010 21:00:09
ORA-19608: F:\BACKUP\Database\ORA_DF729443709_S6959_S1 is not a backup piece

However a manual crosscheck on the backups has no issue and the scheduled task will work fine on the next night. Has anyone seen this before?

Try:

DELETE NOPROMPT BACKUPPIECE 'F:\BACKUP\Database\ORA_DF729443709_S6959_S1';

The solution from the link posted by POracle is the same I suggested:

"...etc ...The next thing to do is to tell RMAN that the backup piece no longer exists. This is done with the DELETE command in RMAN.The next thing to do is to tell RMAN that the backup piece no longer exists. This is done with the DELETE command in RMAN."

Good luck!
