I've had this issue when my framestore is getting full and it is 'scattering' the media. Sometimes a fresh render cures it and renders it in one stream to the raid rather than it having to find all the 'scattered' renders!

In Smoke 2013 your framestore does not have to be DPX as it once was. You can import and create project media as Prores and render as the same prores. So you can work with lesser hardware requirements.
