My server for minecraft has been haveing problems, a big gaping whole the size of one chunk will open up and only one player can see it. this leads to people being able to see where things like diamond are, something i want them to earn. is there a patch or a fix for this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Even once the bug is fixed, it will still be possible for modified or custom clients to see diamonds; the server always sends the entire chunk to the client, including all buried items. – Kevin Reid Feb 1 '11 at 14:24

This is a known issue in the current release of minecraft. If he disconnects and reconnects, the chunk should be visible.

I can confirm Dave McClelland's workaround. Disconnecting/reconnecting will cause the missing chunk to download in most cases. – cr0m Feb 1 '11 at 5:57
