   You may be seeing the beginning of drive deterioration.  If it is
consistently the same sector, your drive controller may be told to remap
that.  (At least, if your drive controller has the capability of doing a
surface scan.) 

   If it is not the same sector... you may be seeing speed instabilities
or other problems in the cabling, etc.
