I have only one idea what could cause something like this.

Did you add any users to the 'guix-builder' group other than the users
dedicated for that purpose?  If so, that's a problem.

guix-daemon considers all of the users in that group to be exclusively
for its use.  When asked to build something, it chooses a user from that
group to do the build, and then after the build it *kills* all processes
owned by that user.

Every once in a while, someone decides to add their normal user account
to that group, and discovers that after every build guix-daemon kills
all of their user processes.  If you added more users to that group,
perhaps guix-daemon is killing some process that causes your encrypted
/home to become unmounted?
