Nikon USA and Nikon Canada have confirmed the photo corruption problem brought on by D3 firmware v1.10 and have, along with other Nikon regions including Europe, pulled the firmware update from their support sites. An advisory states that the problem occurs only when the camera is capturing RAW or RAW + JPEG images, it's set to record 14-bit NEFs and the camera is fired at 9 fps. Switching the D3 to 12-bit NEF or slowing the frame rate to 8 fps or less prevents the corruption from occurring, says the advisory.
