Which means for now one has no choice but restart the factorization from scratch. Also of note is the fact that I rerun my job after deleting the workdir, so it looks like such corruption is generated (possibly in a reproducible way, at least with similar hardware) by the software.

In fact, I strongly suggest to run it with a custom directory. In all cases where the factorization is interrupted /tmp isn't cleaned and the CADO files quickly clog it, not to mention the fact one might want to check something after the factorization is complete anyway.
