It typically looks like some file corruptions that I have met occasionally.
It happened to me when I run out of diskspace. Then there isn't enough
swapspace available and virtual memory allocation may fail. I think that
Emacs doesn't check properly if a malloc fails and then corrupts its memory
when a malloc fails. I have no idea if that might be the cause of your
memory corruption, but I have had several times (let's say once a month)
file corruptions.
