Did you fill your disk during the runs, or have you had a disk crash,
system crash or something?
The magic number is just a special number entry at the beginning of each
frame to guarantee that it is a Gromacs trajectory (in contrast to any
other file with the .xtc extension).
The only way this could be wrong (in particular if it is right in the
first part of the trajectory) is if your file has been corrupted.
