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[1], not sure if it`s related 
to your case.
