RE: Corrupted file
IMHO gone forever, the thumbnail is from the thumbnail cache and nothing to do with the image file.
This is what Gimp says
"This XCF file is corrupt!
I could not even salvage any partial image data from it."

I have come across this before, you were using the gimp-image-grid script.

this is from the file header
"gimp xcf file......gimp-comment.........Created with GIMP..gimp-image-grid...."

I hope you have still have the original files to re-create the image.
Solution, goes against the grain but don't save as a Gimp .xcf file. (for this script)
