Agreed. This is a userland program error message and not a device
driver error message.

That file is part of the gnome-netstatus-applet package.
What is the size of that file? Is it zero sized?
ls -ld /usr/share/omf/gnome-netstatus/gnome-netstatus-zh_CN.omf
If not zero sized then does the file look normal?
The stable version is an xml file with xml tags. I suspect that your
disk filled up or something crashed during the installation or
something and the file was left as a zero sized file. Or that the
file contents are somehow corrupted. If the file does not look like
xml then that is likely the problem. You might want to reinstall the
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-netstatus-applet
