This looks familiar.  I'd suggest:
1) e2fsck -cf /dev/hd?
2) try to move the file
3) make a ramdisk, move the file to the ramdisk, reboot (I get a sneaky
   and devilish feeling doing that)
4) probably the one you will hear the most: debugfs

I've never used 4 and don't trust it personally, but apparently it should
do the trick.
