Not exactly a similar issue, but then I don't use encryption. On
my previous "server" everything in /home was backed up several times
a day (including source tarballs) using rsync to a separate disk
(with a rolling set of x copies). One day, a tarball for gcc became
corrupt. Searching through the backups of that tarball, they all
seemed to be corrupt too. In that case I downloaded it again, but
eventually I powered the box down, ran memtest86+, and sure enough
one of the memory sticks had gone bad.
You said your bios tests the memory, but I tend to have a low
opinion of bios code (it's probably better than I could write, but
that doesn't mean it's any good ;). Try memtest86+.
