If find it a little odd that it happens in 4.8/9 but not in 5.1. I have seen
something like this twice. Once was bad cables and the other time the drive was
getting ready to die. Are they both on the same drive? If so I would really
begin suspecting that there may be a drive problem... such as the disk going bad
in a spot. I have had this happen to me one, the drive for the most part would
read everything fine till it got to one part, thankfully  I was able to replace
it in time befor it totally failed.

You may want to check around on current and stable lists if the hardware checks
out good.
