I've tried the new function of Lightroom 5 "Validate DNG files" on my entire library of 12000 pictures and if found only 8 files invalid.
So far so good. I tried then to press the button Show in library but it is not working: it does not show the pictures in the library and they are there indeed.
So I exported the report in a text file and I searched the library for the files: I found they are in the library.. There picture seems displayed file despite his corruption.

How to reproduce:
Environment: Mac OSX 10.8.4 - Lightroom 5.0
1-Select all Catalog -> All photographs
2-Select Library -> Validate DNG files
3-When the GUI appears it shows some files not valid. You cannot click on them (is this ok?) but you can only expand the section Not validated but not select any of them.
4-Press the button Show in library
Nothing is shown
Further observations:
Take note of the invalid files and search for them in the library: File files are indeed in the library.

Should be nice to know a bit more about why these files are invalid as well :-)
Thanks & Regards,
