Steam: "1 item failed to validate"

So I was farming, and having terrible luck. Now, I recently moved some files around on my PC, and it occurred to me that I could be running an old backup of my game (pre-October '15 patch), so I asked Steam to verify the integrity of my game. Here’s the funny thing: It did find something amiss, and redownloaded a 9.4 mb file. The thing is, that’s unusually small for anything related to a game, so I made sure to have Steam verify my game again. And again, it found something wrong and redownloaded 9.4 mb. Does anyone know what is causing my game to fail this integrity check, or what file is messed up to make this happen? It’s quite odd.

I think that’s pretty normal actually. Mine does it too, and there’s nothing wrong with it. Steam freely!
