generally speaking, I don't think a truecrypt container is much more vulnerable to corruption than a regular hard drive.
if there was corruption, it would just affect the particular files it hit, just like a regular filesystem
for the corruption to prevent the container from being mounted at all, it would have to be fairly unlucky and hit the partition/directory structure . . . just like on a regular drive
now if you're concerned about files being found/noticed at all, you probably need to think more about the software side.
what program do you use to create/view images and does it have a history? do they show up in recent documents? do websites show in history?
in general I think these sorts of things are far more likely to cause you grief . . .
