What causes the “Table error” when I execute a script?

I used Management Studio Express to generate a script to alter a table. The script (as generated by Management Studio Express) changes the table by creating a temporary table, dropping the old table and then renaming the temporary one to replace the old one.

The script fails on one instance of the database with the error message:

Table error: Page (1:6270). Test (offset + len < PAGESIZE) failed. Slot 72, offset 0x11a8 is invalid.

What does it mean? What can possibly cause it? How can I solve it?
