What's This Pink Stuff on My RAW Files?

Can anybody identify this nasty pink band at the top of the following image? The camera was a Konica Minolta A-2 set to RAW + JPEG. I've been seeing this more frequently in the last couple of weeks, but it doesn't happen on every frame and when it does happen the pink band isn't always the same width or in exactly the same place. Sometimes it is further down the frame but always in the top half. When this happens it affects only the RAW file, never the simultaneous JPEG. I am suspicious it might result from trying to zoom in on the JPEG to verify focus while the camera is still trying to write the RAW file to the card.

I brought this image from RAW into Photoshop using ACR. Then I resized it for posting here and saved it to JPEG. No other processing:
