Before other things, can you verify it's not memory errors (check out
memtest and memtest86+, run them both, for several hours) or disk errors
(use smartmontools for Windows and do a "long" / "offline" test of your
drives -- if you're not running an expensive RAID array which should
have certain knobs to run SMART checks of its own).

I mean, if your box does not have ECC RAM, occasional bit flips might
lead to what you're observing.

Trying a recent version of Git is also a good idea--it's now following
the upstream releases pretty close.  160GB archive also appears to be a
good candidate for processing with 64-bit software (though using 32-bit
Git should not matter for the kind of problem you're facing).
