I would suspect a bad computer, at least a bad RAM.
Try to change the computer or at least the RAM.

It could be that but then again such computer would (not necessarily but
very likely) show other severe symptoms, like random freezes or crashes.
If that is not the case then it's more likely emacs itself corrupting
it's own memory contents.
