I have an error that is repeatedly generated on a SQL Server 2005 instance running the databases for MS Team Foundation Server.

 'Severity 16' occurred on INSTANCENAME

Looking in the SQL Server logs gives me

 Errors were encountered during full-text index population for table or indexed view '[TfsWorkItemTracking].[dbo].[WorkItemLongTexts]', database 'TfsWorkItemTracking' (table or indexed view ID '1810105489', database ID '14'). Please see full-text crawl logs for details.

And the actual full-text crawl log (\MSSQL\LOG\SQLFT0001300005.LOG) gives me:

 Error '0x800b0100' occurred during full-text index population for table or indexed view 

 The component 'MSFTE.DLL' reported error while indexing. Component path 'D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.3\MSSQL\Binn\MSFTE.DLL'

If I rebuild the full-text catalog like so...

 ALTER FULLTEXT CATALOG [TeamFoundationServer10FullTextCatalog] 

The error will stop happening for a while, but it will start up again days later. I have searched for hours and cannot figure out what is causing this. Any suggestions?

This troubleshooting section might help. Have you tried to check that db for consistency errors? –  Marian Mar 6 '13 at 11:49
No luck with integrity checks, and no luck with the troubleshooting section unfortunately. –  SomeGuy Mar 13 '13 at 16:02
