Neither of these are compatible with Pro Tools 8 and could be the cause of your problems. Having incompatible plug-ins installed can cause all sorts of unpredictable behavior.

It's possible the corruption occurred early on, but did not exhibit itself in the session until later on - which would explain why the backups are corrupted as well. What can trigger this is cached plug-in or other data. The 'state' of a session is saved, but the cached data (preferences, etc.) can change - which is likely what happened here. When you reopen the session, the cached data interacts differently because of changes in the cache.

I don't know there's much that can be done in this case. I would definitely go through your plug-ins and remove any that are known incompatible or questionable, then trash prefs and restart. Since the sessions themselves have become corrupted, there's no real way to recover the corrupted data, unfortunately.
