For what it`s worth, looking at the timestamp of the broken commit
example you`ve shown, could the problem be related to amending commits?
If so, are you amending through the command line, or maybe using some
tool (like "git-gui")...?
There was a similar discussion recently, not sure if it`s related
to your case.
