[Tinyos-help] CRC check succeeds but the packet is corrupted

   During very high traffic in the network I am finding 
instances when the link layer CRC check succeeds but 
data in the packet is corrupted. 
Theoretically CRC cannot detect all bit errors but I was 
wondering if others have observed the same. I see such kind 
of error once every 50,000 packet (this number could be off 
by a factor of 2)

I am using Tmotes.
