I have interesting bug that I have experienced before but has gone away on its own. This one is not going away though.

I have a giant stripe or chunks missing from my desert biome, I would say probably 7 chunks long.

I'm guessing the chunks are corrupted or something, what was hoping to figure is whether it can repaired or reverted.

Here is a picture of the problem.

Use MCEdit.
