Sorry, I have not been following this thread - excuse me if I misunderstand.

But AFAIK an empty bookmark file should not present any problems for Emacs (for
bookmark handling, at least, and I would hope for Org mode and anything else

Is that really what the problem was - an empty bookmark file was interpreted (by
something) as a corrupt bookmark file?  If so, that in itself sounds like a bug,
to me.

I use Bookmark+, but I would guess that vanilla bookmark.el too handles the
existence of an empty bookmark file with no problem.  If not, that would be the
first thing to fix, I would think.

(Again, ignore if I've misunderstood.)
