Sorry for the slow reply. The symptoms point to memory corruption,
so the question becomes _what_ is corrupting the memory.
The first step to answering that is to try as recent a kernel as
possible, so we can get help from upstream. Could you try a 3.x.y
kernel from sid or experimental and let us know how it goes?
Please also attach full "dmesg" output from booting such a kernel.
Sorry for the trouble,
